For a while now I've seen various members claiming a certain Calibre Drops EVERYTHING on the spot or a certain Projectile does with Rib shot Deer.
So in 40 years of Deer Stalking why have I not found the Holy Grail calibre Rifle or projectile !!!!!
.25-06 and Nosler Partition 120gr have been my combination that has claimed many Deer of all six Species.
Muntjac CWD and Roe yes I've had a very high percentage DTS by a Rib shot But I've seen so many claims of the DTS Sika Fallow and Red yet in all years I've stalked and the many Deer I've shot you can count on one hand the Sika Fallow and Red's that have DTS to a Rib shot.
So what have I been/doing Wrong !!!!
My definition of a Rib shot Deer is lower 3rd and taking the heart
