Only problem with trying a hyper velocity shoulder shot with the 158 is what if it doesn't get past the bone lol if you had back up id imagine one going that fast would knock a small deer over long enough for someone to put the down... As for me I was worried about the 158 making it through a large ohio bucks shoulder at any velocity... I hunt a 40 ish acre lot surrounded by some kind of agriculture for a few miles on every side... Yeah 300 pound deer are the rule not the exception... I even feel iffy with a 180 at 2000 on that large a deer but im going to find out this weekend my 357 mag barrel is getting a lift to maximum and I can already get 1800 out of a 180 so we will see....

As much as you torture test your bullets, I'd love to see what kind of damage you could do with/to a Barnes XPB. Just an idea if you ever get around to it.

Even if the bullet fails, you'd still have 158 grains of lead and copper particles, as well as an assortment of bone fragments, shredding everything in its chest cavity.

Some folks do not deem that as acceptable.

I refuse to pay the price for a Barnes.

I had a friend in CA send me some .223 Rem Barnes ammo as his state is switching to lead free ammo. Asked me to test it.

I shot the biggest hog I?ve shot in years at 80 yards with it. A truly big pig from a ferrel (not fenced) standpoint.

1 shot through the heart and he ran some distance to pile up dead. Recovered the bullet for him in the classic Barnes ?X?.

It worked. Dead pig. Just like all the other ammo I use on pigs. Don?t need to pay that price for a dead pig.

Other animals? Well.........depends on the animal.

I?m in the business of making things dead as efficiently as possible. Why pay more?
