received a call from a landowner this morning with a feral deer issue. on arrival at the property, and establishing the whereabouts of the deer the hunt started. found it some distance away about to move off and not standing still. this made a head shot difficult, so elected for a lung shot. the 140 gn nosler partition at 3000 fps meant that no range estimation was necessary or hold over/under. bang. 1 dead deer. job done. I have come to expect that from this rifle - an old friend - boring reliability in an easy package to use. the partition did its job, missing any rib on the way in, and leaving an amount of damage on the way out. not a lot of wasted meat, even on the ribs. bruce.
