No personal experience, but have heard the .300 deep curls have dispatched Elk quite effectively.

A thing of beauty Nolehoe. Congratulations on the doe.

Where did you hit her? Did she drop or run?

OK... we are talking Gold Dot/Deep Curls again so I think it might be OK to bring this picture up again.

These bullets were shot into the raised portion of a water bar on a road. The water bar was 95% Palouse soil type - clay. It was completely saturated with water from melting snow and rain (mud). It really is a good medium to test bullet performance. I believe it to be more destructive on a bullet than shooting an animal even shooting through a big bone.

This was a 100 yard shot with a muzzle velocity above 1700 fps. for both weights

Hey Semi,

hit her center mass right behind front shoulder, quartering towards me slightly. The bullet hit a rib and turned a little exiting between 2nd and 3rd ribs (counting from the last rib) and was caught by the skin. there were half a dozen smaller exit wounds from bullet frags and bone. the entrance wound was quite graphic, but a fragment of some sort penetrated her diaphragm. the punctured diaphragm along with no exit (through the skin) and the entrance being mid-ways up accounted for a sparse but followable blood trail. She lit out of there like somebody stuck a hot iron to her butt. Went about 100 yds before dropping any blood and another 60 or so before going down. will post a pic later and you can kinda see where I hit her.

I carry gold dots in 9mm and 40SW. They are an awesome round and hold together very well. I've done a bunch of testing with them in 9mm and 40cal and they always open up like that. Another good round is the Federal HST but Federal doesn't sell just the bullets.
