    243 sierra 85 grn

    Shot 4 roe this weekend with these bullets all was good shots and all ran 60/100 yds two of them I thought at first was missed ?? But knew I hadn't, plenty of internal damage and no meat damage so game dealer happy, anyone had any experience with them

    Im using these with h4350 42.5 grains , I have shot 3 roe bucks so far one dropped on the spot desroyed the heart , the other two was lung shot s and ran 15 to 20 yards each so far im pretty impressed also using the hornady 87 grain sp and they shoot the same poi so I might try them out to .

    I use them with 36 grns Varget in my CZ very accurate with good stopping power . Have used them on Reds and Fallow but not as much as on Roe, very happy with performance.

    I am currently using the 80 gn blitz under 45gns of win 760/h414 and have to say I am very impressed up to now, they flatten foxes on the spot, and I have shot two roe and a cwd with them and all dropped on the spot without much meat damage, which did surprise and please me as the blitz are billed as a varmint bullet, but I think the jacket is tougher than the blitzkings, in the same way that the 100gn prohunter and gamekings differ in jacket toughness.
