    Antelope shot at 417 yards. .257 Wby, bullet was a 100 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip. My own reloads, chronographed at 3500 fps. Destroyed a complete front shoulder .

    I am not a big fan of this bullet (I do shoot and love Nosler Partition bullets), but 100 were given to me so I loaded them up. They grouped really well, less than moa. I am using the rest for predators.

    My normal bullet for the .257 & .25-06 is a Sierra 117 gr BT Game King. It shoots great and does real well on deer & antelope, I have shot over 100 of them with this bullet.

    7mm Mag shooting SST's. That's the last animal that I shot with SST's. Also a Nosler Partition fan, which I've shot for 20+ years aside from this one small stint with a different bullet. I will say that this bullet did do a great job on a few bucks, but when it hit bone, it seemed to explode.

    Deer was about 40 yds, quartering away, shot entered just behind front leg at a pretty steep downward angle (shot from high tree stand). He ran hard for about 50yds and dropped. The blood trail was impressive to say the least.
    Exit wound was in lower front chest about 1-1.25 inch diameter hole. The top of the heart and most of the major vessels there were destroyed. (I did manage to save the very bottom of the heart.

    Based upon the large wound channel and some small lead fragments adjacent, I suspect some or most of the front half of the bullet stayed in and the base of the partition exited.
    Good old partition, tough to beat. I shoot this same load for elk with similar results.

    Large bodied buck from far northern MN continued

    The buck ran just out of sight in the thick northern forest, but he wasn't tough to find. Here are a few pics of the blood trail.

    Another public land northern MN buck

    300 wsm, 180 grain nosler partition, 2880 fps muzzle velocity, (chronographed reload)
    I shot this buck at about 35 yds, he was facing directly towards me. We met head on while sneaking down the same deer trail to/from from a bedding area. I was fortunate to see his movement first and was just squeezing the trigger when he spotted me and stopped. The impact lifted his front legs right off the ground, he seemed to rear back on his hind legs and flipped over completely backwards! Wow! I've never shot anything and had it go down like that. I guess thats what absorbing over 3000 ft/lbs of energy will do! He stayed right where he landed. Bang, Flop, Dead!

    I circled the entrance wound in Black. There was no exit wound.

    The Blue circle is where I found the bullet while skinning. It was up against the hide along the front of the rear quarter. It had traveled through the full length of the body cavity. The bullet shed the entire front half in route and I found only the fully intact mushroomed base. There was no damage to any of the quarters, but I did have to discard some neck/brisket meat. I kept the bullet,(its around here somewhere) I'll attach a pic of it when I find it.

    This is the one from my deer last year. Shot him with 7-08 using the 150gr ABLR at 315 yds. He hopped in the air when hit and crashed into the trees about 30 yds. The exit hole was approximately the size of a quarter.
