Re: Nosler Ballistic tip Hunting
I shot two deer with them last year out of my 25-06, in the 100gr flavor. One was at 60 yards, and one was at 260. I had them loaded up with 55gr of RL-22, and was shooting them out of my browning x-bolt wit ha 24 inch barrel. I don't have a chrono, so I have no idea what the actual velocity was, but it should have been somewhere close to 3200. In both cases, I thought I missed the deer. Each ran about 15 yards, stopped, look around and fell over dead. Upon field dressing, the lungs in both deer were trashed, and I found a few pieces of copper jacket shrapnel in the chest cavity. Both deer had a nickel sized exit wound also. You can't ask for much more than that. Vitals destroyed, and a hole on both sides. I think I'll stick with them and see how they keep on performing. The price is right, and the shoot good in my gun. I had heard stories of them comping apart/blowing up but the limited experience I had with them was great.
I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright
