I'm shooting a Remington 700 with Hornady 150 SST bullets and H414 Power. At 200 yards it is shooting a very tight group about 1 inch. Opening day I shot a nice 8 point, very little blood trail a drop here and there. Found the deer about 30 yards up the ridge. Bullet went right though and small exit hole. Sunday day #2 shot a doe in the neck droped her in her tracks 150 yards again no blood. Sunday afternoon Doe standing 235 yards out, shooting off a stick shot she almost went down right then could tell she was hit. Ran into the woods I saw her fall though scope. Walked down no blood, went into the woods found where she went down again no blood. Found a couple of places she had been down. Yesterday (Sunday) shot another doe 60 yards solid hit again she stumbling while trying to run out of the field. Again no blood.

Has anyone else shooting these bullets have or having the same problem?

I'm going back to bullets I know will work.

I have about 150 plus rounds loaded plus some H414 power and extra bullets if someone is interested PM and we can work out a deal.

I had that problem with the .308 150gr in my Dads .308. They didnt expand much at all. However with my .260 and 6.5mm 140 grainers they are blowing up just like I want them too.

Thanks for the input Steven, I hate hitting a deer and not being able to find them. I use to shoot seria bullets and I'm going back to them. Bought some 150 grins last night. I know what they will do when they hit.

I'm shooting SST's out of a 270 WSM 130 grs and a 180 grs out of 300WM. So far no problems with a blood trail. I use Sierra GK's too,no complant's about either. Any idea how fast they are going?

I have them loaded mid range and they are shooting about 2800 FT PS. Love the bullets but losing 2 deer in one week. That is just something I do not like to do what so ever.
