I should clarify the question. With larger calibres the muzzle flip is such that I am invariably looking through the scope above the deer's back as the bullet impacts.
In my early days of stalking it was a revelation to me to see on a Hunting DVD of the bullet impact. On odd occassions eg shooting downhill, or with a heavy barreled rifle and moderator I have seen the strike.
What are the experiences of the members? (and any solutions?)
