And none of those are expensive, just accurate, reliable, & effective. I can remember bitching about expensive high performance bullets being $1/bullet not that long ago. Now some of them are nearly $2/bullet. The manufacturers have done a great job of convincing lots of folks that Cor-Locts, Game Kings, & HotCores aren’t enough bullet for 100-150 lb whitetails. BUT, if they think they need them to improve their game, they should go for it.I use 180 gn Speer Grand Slams in my 300 Weatherby. It slams deer to the ground and doesn't bloodshot a lot of meat, never have caught one. In 30-06s My son and I shoot 165 gn Speer SBTs. They hammer the deer. Most just drop. They do bruise some meat. Never have caught.one yet. In my 35 Whelen I shoot 225 gn Sierra Game kings. They hammer deer and you can almost eat up to the hole. I caught one a few years ago that went length wise through a 10 point. And it looked like a corelokt commercial.
