    Not on my deer unless you buy the carcass and thats with any plastic point.
    roe damage easily and those who use such bullets generally drive them hard.
    if they don't knacker the deer thats ok you can take it anyway and sell it on.
    I've seen enough knackered carcass's to have made my mind up.
    thems the rules.

    any soft point if its not a varmint type.
    partitions if you can get them.

    I'll support the view on Partitions, I use them in 130 grain through my .270, Roe are nicely shot with them.

    I use them all the time, never had a problem, never had any money knocked off by the game dealer because of damage due to a BT.

    But if I could only get SPs I won’t worry, bullet placed just behind the front leg equals a dead deer.

    For urban deer they are the first choice and will if placed even close to bang on will reduce a deer to jelly. Just what you want when the Mway is at you back or side. I send 50% to the game dealer and have never had a deer discounted for damage.
