Well I finally had the opportunity to see how well my handloads performed on deer. I shot two last week and was quite impressed. First deer was DRT with a high shoulder shot. Second deer was DRT with shot right behind the shoulder. Both were complete pass throughs. Ranges were 110 yards and 80 yards.

Was this the VLD hunting bullet or one of their other offerings? I have a small sample with the VLD Hunting started at at 2900+ fps and shots inside 200 yards and was not impressed.

The wound in front of shoulder is the exit.
It was the 140gn VLD. Powder was IMR4350, around 2700 fps.
