Default Swift A Frame on deer.

Anybody ever use the Swift A Frame on a deer, and did it mushroom well?

I think there for heavier skinned animals. I have a box of Safari grade 160's for my 7 mag and I'm waiting to use them on something bigger then deer. For deer I'm shooting 140g XLC's.

Yea, I have before a moose trip about 5 years ago. Definately not a deer bullet. Unless you want to anchor that badboy thru both shoulders. Of course didn't recover the bullet.

As others have stated, save these bullets for African game. I shot a cow elk in 2003 with a 120 gr. A-Frame out of a .25-06 Ackley. Although the elk went down in four or five seconds, it looked like the bullet could have gone through three elk standing side to side. A friend of mine used this same load on mule deer in 2003 and got end-for-end penetration.

Don't you know that you can't shoot elk with that pep squeek 25-06?. Did you feel its pulse to be sure it was Dead dead?

That big old cow never know what hit her - or where it came from. They wandered out into the meadow I was watching and, when it appeared the coast was clear, put their heads down and started feeding. That little bullet blew a golf ball size hole right through the heart of that elk and exited. Behind her, it went clear through a fair size aspen tree.
