Right theres no secret to my dislike of plastic points(on roe) though I have shot alot of deer with them.
It may be of interest to members and guests to let all have there say.
I will only speak from experience from bullets I have fired at deer.
Not talking of accuracy because they might be good or bad in your rifle.
On game performance only please, on a scale of 1-5 for killing power(expansion) / meat damage(including bruising) / penetration....1 poor 5 excellent.
For the majority of us boiler room shots only please as neck and head shots meat damage ect is irrelevent.
I think at least x3 deer should have been taken with any bullet for the purpose of this excercise.
