Thread: Hornady for Deer

  1. #1

    Hornady for Deer

    I recently re loaded my 30-06 cases using the Hornady Interlock 165grn BTSP bullet and am very happy with the way they group and handle in my Classic Parker Hale at the range. The question I have is are they good on deer ? as I have not had the chance to use them out in the field yet and want to stock up at the shooting show next week if I see some.
    Cheers

    No. These bullets have been known to bounce off of even the smallest deer, enraging them to the point of attacking the shooter.

    Yeah. Only kidding. I personally witnessed 3 large mule deer and 1 smaller whitetail hit with these bullets launched from a 30-06 last November. All dead pretty darned quick.~Muir

    PS: In my quest for a universal hunting load that will work well in all of my 30-06 rifles, this was the bullet I settled on.

    I use 130gr interlocks in 270.
    i like them, they hold together well even at very short range (sub 40yds) but they still open up well

    You can see the interlock ring on the fully expanded bullet

    I think you will find you have to use factory ammo for DSC1

    Don't know how closely they check, but if they come out of a factory box I'm sure no one will notice

    Thanks just checked the manual it tells you what you are required to shoot as far as distance and target but nothing about ammo. No doubt someone on here will have the answer if not a phone call tomorrow is needed
