Default Precision Rifle Dead Center Bullets?

Anyone have any real world experience with these bullets? Particularly, the terminal performance on game such as deer. I'm starting to tinker with some different bullets and, from what I've read, these sound pretty good.

Terrific lead bullet - high B.C. - easy-loading - known for exit wounds - just overly-priced unless you purchase a minimum of 120. The only one to avoid is the 40/50 260 gr... if Cecil Eppstill produces it. That one was designed for the speedy Savage ML-10 smokeless ML.I recommend any of the 40/50s from 180-240 grain -- then the 45-cal D.C. 300-340 grain versions.

I like bigger bullets - simply because we get only one shot hunting. That 340 gr. is a real stomper that'll knock the snot out of deer or elk. Maybe someone here will share a 240-pk with you. That would be the smartest/best money value in that bullet. Don't be afraid to buy in bulk. I purchased the last seven 36-pks of 375 gr Buffalo S.S.Bs Gander Mountain had a few years ago for $10.99 each. I never regretted it since.

I like my bullets on the heavier side as well. I've been shooting the 348 gr. powerbelts and tinkering with the 405 gr. powerbelts. Wanting something with a little better B.C. and the dead centers might possibly be the ticket. The 300 gr 45/50 is what I'll be playing with.

I never had any luck with them, I guess my Omega just don't like them it shoots almost every thing else real well but I had to load down under 100 gr to get them to group.I think they are awful expensive for what they are like the PB at leastthe PBshoot well for me.Lee

I hunted with the qt's and the dead centers last year. One kill with each. Was very impressed. Loved them on the range(groups). the dead center exited at 35 yds. the q.t. was pushing against the skin opposite side at 45 yds. i am ordering several packs before this season. the dead center was 300 gr. the q.t. was 240 gr. both group excellent at 100 yds with 110 gr pyrodex. 240 gr are better at 150 yds.
