Just really got into reloading this fall (hence my questions in other posts) but my 12 yo used a cartridge he reloaded to kill his first antlered deer this year.

It was a bang flop on a nice little spike(130 or so) at around 70 yards. Exit wound was about 1/2" with pieces of lung outside.

308 Winchester with 40 grain of Varget pushing a 150 grain Hornady interlock round nose. This a mid range load and is probably only doing 2200 out the Ruger Scout we used.

Need to tune it for accuracy we were getting 11/2" groups with it at the range.

I started in 1985. My NCOIC taught me how to reload for my 30.06. The last time I bought any factory loads for deer hunting was when a box of 30.06 was around $10 or so. Thank you MSgt Henderson. Now the casting part is fairly new for me. Been doing that for modern guns for about 3 years now. I did pour my own .50 round balls back in the 80's but that was pretty easy and not much to mess up.
