Default Better than a range report

Took this guy Wednesday evening, around 5 pm, with the Disc Extreme.

Shot was 130 yards, shooting the 275 gr Bloodline, over 110 gr of Bh209 and Fed 209A primer.

I have a Bushnell Trophy 2-7 x 36 with DOA reticle on the Disc.

In not knowing what a Bloodline was, I did a search.

My results: That bullet is too pretty to shoot.

Nice! Hunting in the snow is not something I've done a lot of, but the times that I have, I greatly enjoyed it.

Bullet entry was mid way up, catching part of the shoulder, just above the heart. Heart arteries blown off. Lungs tore up, bullet petal paths through the lungs. Entrance and exit about the same size. Deer went about 40 yards, dead on its feet.

Internal damage looked similar to a rifle hit. Never seen this with other muzzy bullets I've shot.
