    Check out the BC on that bullet. It is like a flying brick. I've shot them out of my 30-30 at 2500fps. Anything past 150 yards and the wind really pushes them around and they slow down really fast, so your scope settings will have to change significantly for the 80 shots.

    That said, many have reported they work well on deer. I'd use them if I didn't have anything else, but they won't fly like your pointy bullets.
