Mods - if you feel this one belongs in the ammo/reloading section please move it. I thought it might better here since it's specifically about hunting. You decide. I'll be using 308win for my attempt at hunting deer and wanted to see what you all use as your hunting ammo. I'm mainly interested in the projectile itself since i'll probably be loading my own. But if there is a good factory round that you use, please share it. I've been a target shooter my entire gun owning life so I know little about hunting rounds. I've loaded up just about every variety of .223 under the sun for punching paper or for steel targets but never thought about hitting game with it. Even developed some interesting .223 home defense rounds. I would love this to be an open discussion, not just a poll style thread. Please share as much info as possible, such as: -bullet weight/type -rifle -barrel length/twist How's the penetration? Flight path? etc. If you've developed the load yourself, i'd love to get your input on it's ballistics. (not planning on copying it, i'll develop it myself). I want to start developing the load now and have enough time to get out and practice with it before deer season.
