KIM: HE IS 1 OF THE TOP 3 BUCKS EVER FOR ME AND HE IS GOING BETWEEN THE OTHER 2. HARD TO RATE DEER, OTHER THAN BY SCORE, BECAUSE EACH ONE IS DISTINCTIVE, BUT THIS IS ONE WAS VERY SPECIAL.

Fantastic deer Rey. I was one that was worried about driving this bullet too fast. I've been impressed so far with the accuracy but have not used them on game. Was anxiously waiting for your results. Actual "field" tests trumps speculation every time. Thanks for reporting the details on the bullet performance. All fears I had using the DCHP on deer have been alleviated.

Again great buck and congratulations on a fine hunt.

Dan

Seems like there is no .452 260gr boolit listed. l got a truck

load of 260gr Speers for a SONG off GunBroken awhile back Never

loaded them in 45 Colt... l have shot bunches of them in BAM

BAM, my 460S&W.

Favourite load is a ''REDUCED'' one found in Speer. 30gr of 2400

gives me app 1600FPS.

The 260 Speers were pulled boolits too... Sorry for Speer to drop

its 260

That's one great deer and the Speer performed great. I killed a small buck (15yds) and a doe (35yds) last year using the 44Spl. 200 grain Gold Dot at approx. 850fsp. Bullet went thru both and I cut the skin and recovered both bullets. Good mushroom and great performance. Again that is one heavy antlered deer. Congrats!

I SHOT THIS NICE SIZED AOUDAD EWE, PROBABLY 100 - 125lbs LW, @ 66 YARDS ON SATURDAY 12/28/19. I WAS USING THE RUGER BISLEY HUNTER IN 45 COLT, SCOPE SET AT 5x, AND 27grs OF 296 UNDER THE SPEER DEEP CURL 250gr HP. THE SHOT IS SLIGHTLY DOWNHILL AND THE TERRAIN IS UNEVEN AND WHAT LOOKS LIKE A PERFECT BROADSIDE SHOT USUALLY IS DISTORTED BY THE ANIMALS FOOTING IN THE UNEVEN TERRAIN. ALSO, TENDENCY IS TO SHOOT HIGH AT THESE SHORTER DOWNHILL RANGES. BULLET HIT HER IN THE SPINE, BEHIND THE SHOULDER, SHE DROPPED IMMEDIATELY, CRAWLED 12 YARDS AND DIED FAST. BULLET WAS JUST UNDER THE SKIN IN THE OFFSIDE (THE POINT OF THE KNIFE BLADE IS POINTING TO WHERE THE SLUG IS). MOST OF THE BLOOD, AND THERE WAS A LOT OF IT, WAS FROM THE ENTRY HOLE, WITH A LITTLE FROM THE MOUTH AND/OR NOSTRILS.



THIS IS WHERE SHE FELL, AND ALL THIS BLOOD CAME OUT OF THE ENTRY HOLE. I AM "THINKING" THAT THE BULLET BLEW BONE SHRAPNEL DOWN INTO THE LUNGS CAUSING MASSIVE HEMMORAGHING.





PHOTOS OF THE RECOVERED BULLET, RECOVERED JUST UNDER THE SKIN, RETAINED WEIGHT 166grs. PRETTY GOOD TEST FOR THE BULLET, SHORTER RANGE (66 YARDS IN A STRAIGHT LINE, BUT MAYBE ONLY 60 YARDS OF GRAVITY) AND WENT THRU THE SPINE. WHEN I CUT THE BULLET OUT I FELT AROUND FOR SHRAPNEL AND ALL I DUG OUT WERE PIECES OF BONE. NOTHING HERE THAT WILL KEEP ME FROM USING THESE BULLETS IN THE HUNTER FOR DEER, AOUDAD EWES, JAVELINA AND HOGS.
