    Understand bullet performance better... lets do this

    I'm a little worried out the types of bullets stalkers are willing to throw at deer before they understanding how a particular bullet is designed to perform. Match hollow point bullets for example, do they penetrate as Ballistic Tip Hunting bullets or Gamekings? And while the most of us will be sitting there confident in the answer, many will not be. Reloading your own bullets is great but too many reloaders are faced with take it or leave it deals that see them walking out of the shop with bullets that simply will not be suitable for the deer they intend to shoot. Lets try and put together some good information with pics and vids that will help stalkers choose the right bullets for them. Here's a good start.

    Great idea. I know nothing about bullets or reloading so any info is good to me.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    Very well but not legal in the Uk other countries use them to great effect on deer size animals, but like any bullet design it has its limits and its only ethical to know what a particular bullet was designed for and its uses and it surely is the responsibility (ethically) of the end user to have some knowledge of what He-She is using on live game.

    Research what bullets you're thinking of using, see what they're designed to be used on, ask other people's opinions. But primarily use a bullet for its intended purpose, be it deer, fox or what ever.

    A bullet designed to f*ck up foxes isn't (in my opinion) a good recommendation to a beginner for use on deer, irrelevant of some people's beliefs.
