After finishing with a load of RWS 130gn T-Mantel SP for my .270 I have started to use 130gn Norma SP's as these are avalible locally. On paper they grouped well with no change in point of impact from the RWS.
This week I shot my first two reds with this round and I'm not sure if it's bad luck or or what but the round does not appear to have the same clout as the RWS. Today's hind for instance was shot broad side high-mid sholder and the bullet never even made it into the second shoulder, I know from a similar shot on a stag that the RWS passed through both sholders (I actually have the bullet as it was lodged under the skin of the second sholder it passed through!). And the first hind this week was shot in the neck and she required a follow up shot - on inspecting the neck the bullet had struck bone but not caused the damage I'd have expected with the RWS.
I know every bullet is different but I'm starting to doubt myself, it is just me isn't it? In my head it sounds redicolous that I'm questioning the bullet, has anyone else been through something similar?
