Thanks John!

My mule deer hunt in Wyoming was spectacular. On the second day we spotted an old buck a bit over a mile and a half away. Made a stalk and put him down. The shot was just over 300 yards and he was quartering away. I put the bullet further forward than I would have liked (it hit just in front of the shoulder and exited in the neck on the off side) but the buck dropped where he stood and never even wiggled. Daylen Carrell of D&D Outfitters is one of the most impressive guides I have hunted with and he knows his mule deer.

A special thanks goes out to John Nosler for the Partition bullet! Looks like Jack Slack was right about this bullet.
