Howdy, Bagged myself a decent buck this weekend by my standards. Shot him from 225-250 yards with a hand loaded round from my 270. Winchester brass, 52.0 gr of H4350 and 130 gr Hornady Interlock. It was a good shot; the buck was quartering away slightly and the bullet entered the rear left rib cage right at the diaphragm, exiting through the front left rib cage after going through both lungs. Well, most of it exited anyway... When I was deboning I found the jacket of the bullet in the backstrap with quite a lot of fur. Tells me it likely expanded upon impact and veered up into the backstrap while the core went straight through. Exit was about nickel sized. A rib was shattered on either side. The buck went over the hill it was on and made it about a quarter mile until it died. The exit hole size tells me it didn’t expand a whole lot (maybe I’m wrong) and I know this charge is on the low end of the suggested range. It was the most accurate I could muster though. So with it being theoretically low velocity, I’m a little disappointed that the jacket separated. It still worked but I’m thinking it should’ve been a DRT kind of situation; that’s what has happened in the past with this kind of shot. He was a tough son of a buck though haha. Anyone else noticed this with the interlocks? Clearly it still did the trick but I’m just curious if others have noticed this happening. Next year I’m loading up with H4831 to see if I can get a bit more velocity and keep it accurate. Trying to decide on bullets. Game king is a top contender.
