Default My boy got an 8 pt

Loaded the Encore with 60 grn of buckhorn 209 and a 240 grn cheap shot bullet solid lead[xtp without the jacket] figured it would be better with a light load and it did the job bullet went thru and was against the skin on the opposite side shot about 25 yrds deer fell in its tracks

Excellent slimdaddy. Nice buck and big smile. Two young'uns killed their first deer on our lease last weekend, a big doe and a spike buck. Big smiles and congratulations all around.
