I took an experienced stalker out the other night onto my ground for an evenings stalk. He used his 30.06 with a Hornady BT load. He connected with a 4 point Roe at about 40 M but unfortunately a little too far back. The deer dropped on the spot, however the BT had turned its insides into porridge and caused about a dozen obvious but very small exit wounds - it was a total mess.
Why do some of us use these loads for deer when so many other very effective bullets are on the market ?
