I was out this morning after a fallow, and as luck would have it, I bagged not one, but three in about 20 seconds one after the other! Result.
However, on the third shot, a high neck front on the deer went down on the spot as you would expect, but what I didn't expect was the round to ricochet and ping off somewhere over the top of me and into the wood behind
i have never experienced a .308 doing that, and hope I don't again! It was feral 150 grain soft nose that I use all the time. Initially I thought the round must have exited the neck and hit a stone in the field......nope, no exit wound at all, just a small entry wound and that was all.
anyone else ever had this happen, certainly made me stop and think for a second!
