I shot a deer with a Ruger Blackhawk using a .22 short and it dropped on the spot. Doesn't mean it was the right bullet............

.22s are illegal to hunt with in the states I hunt.

I can use a spear here....somehow i dont think its as good as using bow or a crossbow with a good broadhead though. I can legally use a 22 Hornet or even a 17cal CF also...Oddly neither one seems like a good idea.

You mean like the premium priced plated PB Plats or sub 50cent 300gr Unicor soft points?
You most definitely need a premium bonded bullet traveling at hyper speeds to penetrate it!
$1.67 each https://www.midwayusa.com/product/24...tip-pack-of-15

37 cents each plus the cost of a sabot https://www.midwayusa.com/product/55...oint-box-of-50

Too Funny



The bullet went through the carpet, plywood, and destroyed the first two jugs. Then the bullet penetrated through the third, fourth, and fifth jug , and into the powder jug. There was an exit hole in the powder jug, and there were pages torn in the phone book, however, the bullet was found inside the powder jug. The small piece of the bullet was found embedded in the plastic of the second water jug. The bullet now weighs 297.2 grain.

If the bullet doesn't work on Rons testing, it's sure not gonna work on game. And that doesn't matter if the animal is hard to kill or not.

That is what i thought, not an actual price available to anyone. Ive never even seen larger bulk packs of Rainiers that cheap.

Its a shame they are not priced closer to a Rainier since that is who makes the Harvester bullets. You can get 100 50cal 335gr Rainier HPs for about $23. Hard to imagine the tip is worth roughly doubling the price.

That Speer 300gr JSP i posted is one heckuva a tough bullet. Maybe a bit too tough for deer but not bad at all for bear and its a bargain available to anyone.

They are even cheaper at Grafs and they normally have great pricing on sabots too

300gr DeepCurls
https://www.grafs.com/retail/catalog...roductId/17309

$6-$7 for 50 sabots
