    sako 123gr

    I'd be grateful for people's opinions on sako 123gr soft points.

    Had a left over box to use up and tried them on fallow yesterday. 2 clean kills (neck and high heart).

    One runner - centre chest. Very much alive after 5 mins, but fortunately tumbled down a hill and lay still long enough for follow up shot.

    Have used them in the past, a few years ago now. In .30-06 And found them fine if a little destructive. Can you honestly say your shot placement was ok on your runner? What calibre are you using them in?

    Used them in a .308 for the last 6 years on Roe, Munties, Fallow and Red hinds. Can't recall any problems.

    Devastating in what way ?
    "Don't say I didnae warn ye !"

    I only stalk Roe and they can hit a bit hard. I don't have a dog and so far I have not needed one. No runners but some meat damage.

    i have used these and the 1st batch i bought were perfect on the animal but then the second batch i bought blew everything up badly.
