    some rifles can shoot bh209 and if this one will I’d get bh209 cci mag primers and .452 xtp. If not bh209 compatible use 777 pellet at 100gr and same bullet. I shot a medium doe in January with that bullet and dropped her and blood Stevie wonder could see. I buy sabots and bullets in bulk online for more practice

    There is really not much to say without knowing the type of rifle, propellant, bullet.

    Thank goodness for brother redneck. I'm the opposite of OCD, some would say sloppy, so simple is critical for me.

    You can easily overthink the problem. Remember this tech level has successfully harvested deer for more than 250 years, using soft-lead spheres (which have a crappy ballistic coefficient), and in some cases with an ignition system that needs a hunk of rock to make it work. :D

    Also remember that hunting today is like golf today..., there is always somebody out there with the newest gadget/invention that you simply MUST buy to have any chance at harvesting a deer...., of course the centuries prior where deer were harvested the deer were just as smart, and the hunters did just fine without the newest gadget/invention.

    I still walk the late season woods with a Pennsylvania flintlock long rifle my grandfather made. Just good old patched .50 cal round ball and black powder... Kills them dead inside of 100 yards...
