I am truely impressed. Never met anyone who could recover from 30-06 recoil and reaquire the target quick enough at 150yds to see the bullet strike through their scope.Pat T said:In the early 80's I was using your beloved PSP core-locked TWICE, once on a huge 8 point at about 150 yards. I saw the hit right in the lungs through the scope. Deer dropped then took off at a sprint for 500 yards (I later found out).
Umm, wrong person to try and blow smoke. There is that nasty thing called recoil. To see the impact at 150yds you have to recover from recoil and re-aquire the animal in less than 0.17 sec. Even with a ported heavy barrelled 30-06 recovering from the recoil would at best be marginally accomplished in that time frame.Pat T said:Then I guess you ought to get better with a rifle than you are with your wise butt remarks.

A lot of the bullet properties you describe about the BT is what makes them a more effective deer-stopper. I will be the first one to say they should not be used on game any heavier than our eastern whitetail. But for them, I think this bullets performance far exceeds that which I've witnessed form the PSP. I just don't believe the PSP expands enough to put a quick stop on a deer, and many times doesn't leave enough of a blood trail. I have used the BT bullets on about 2 dozen deer now, and have never had a "failure". In fact, I've never recovered the bullets, they have all been put completely through the deers body at varying angles and ranges from 30 to 250 yards and straight on to completely facing away. The hydrostatic shock generated in the vitals by these bullets immediately shuts them down. The farthest I've had one travel after being hit is 30 yards. Whatever, apparently our minds are all made up, and aren't going to change.
Grimel - truthfully and honestly I have seen the fur fly through the scope on shots at a deer, and known where the bullet has hit. That's all I can tell you.
