Hit a farm game cooperator this morning that I haven't hunted yet this fall. The guy lets anybody hunt that asks. I decided to take my little 22/250 with me as I always wanted to take a deer with it. I wasn't expecting much. In the gray light of dawn had 3 come past me at 50 yards but I couldn't be certain they didn't have horns so I held off. About 9, I took a little walk to a familiar stump and sat till 10. I decided to move up the ridge another 100 yards and 3 deer exploding from their beds in a dead ash tree. They were bedded 80 yards from me and we never saw each other until I eased closer. Once I got to where I wanted to be I caught just a slight flick of white and finally made out 2 deer feeding. In the steady wind, I was able to sneak into about 70 yards and put a 55 grain bullet behind the shoulder. Down for the count! Pretty impressed with the performance of the 22/250.
Thanks. Factory Remington 55 grain pointed soft points. Those and the Winchester 55 grain hollow points I use for furbearers group within 1 inch of each other. Entered behind the shoulder and exited the offside breaking the leg on the way out.
