Hello friend, hope all is well with you and yours. You replied to one of my post regarding bullets and suggested Deering. He sent me a handful of 250 grs. After no clear opportunities all season, Sat (1-29-11) a worthwhile doe presented (actually 5 were counted after all the scrambling) and was harvested. Broadside shot 75yds, slug passed clean through (immagine that) and made a 50cent size exit. I wish I could have lined up two or three, I could have pulled a 'Quigley' ! The 250gr is overkill for whitetails. Chrono my loads, 1780fps. Just thought you'd like hear a huntin story. :)

I don't call them Stone Fence Devastators for nothing. Glad to hear you have venison in the freezer.
