Shot a doe this weekend. Neck shot with a 243 win 100 grain Sierra Prohunter less than 100 yards. Perfect broad side shot entrance dead center of neck, bullet went in hit bone and blew out top of neck did not break the spine, fortunately she fell down and bled out. Have used these before without issue. I like a bullet I can trust to work every time. Had I taken a body shot and hit a shoulder it may have never penetrated the chest cavity. Long live partitions! grin

Obviously, you need to move up to a .338 WinMag.

223 and a 60 grain partition would have made it through grin

A 6.5 Criedmoor would never have done that.

Redchevy, I just tried to order some 60 gr Partitions, but all the places I tried were out of stock.

I just worked up a load with the Partitions (I had most of one box) and will try them out on some pigs. Iíll be stingy with them till I can get more.

Wait, so she wasn't dead?

I don't think she'd be deader with partitions nuts

Neck = sausage meat or a good place to put a bullet.

Point isnít that the deer isnít dead, it is if I would have taken a shoulder shot and hit the front leg and the bullet hit bone and changed course like that and just rolled up the shoulder blade no vitals would be hit and it would probably be a lost animal.

They do what they are suppose to some of the time or part of the time but if you hit bone itís a gamble.

I think every doe I've ever shot in the brain stem has been with an A-max. Maybe 20 by now. Every time the main breaker was switched off, dead before they hit the ground.

Reminds me of that 200 plus pound hog I shot two Fridays ago, right behind the ear and out the other with an Accubond and leaving a pierced ear on exit. clap

Bullet tumble from hitting something on way to target?

Sure this one did to, we all know however not all shots are in the all mighty brain stem.
