Default Remember to use a Premium Bullet this fall!

Guys, I won't say it again but this one last time! Use the most expensive,fanciest, premium bullet you can possibly afford! You have GOT to gear up as the deer have become more liberalized and have taken action. The Deer Lives Matter group has been protesting for the past 5 months and has taken action against hunters and is now forcing them to gear up for the up coming hunting season.

Forget about lead, powerbelts, round balls, etc. You MUST use those unmentionable premium bullets that look like they came from a 88mm german tank.

DLM has teamed up with PETA and are now fully equipped with special bullet proof vests. You will need at least 115gr BH209 and a premium bullet to have a chance at penetrating.

Just when you think harvesting deer is hard, it gets even harder....

And make sure you get some inserts if using a particular brand of soft as butter lead bullet.

Something is weird with the lead in PB's. They shouldn't do what they do. Imagine how popular they would be is they gave a perfect mushroom every time? They load good, and are accurate. I think hunters would accept the high price better if the terminal performance was better.

They work sometimes now, and other times not at all. The problem is, they have to be going the perfect speed for the conditions. That's just not possible to do, and it shouldn't have to be either.
My oh my how times have changed.
