30 Rem AR, 125 gr. AccuTip – Mule Deer

This is the heart from the mule deer I shot with the 125 gr. AccuTip out of the 30 Rem AR. Range was 93 yards. The buck ran about 18 yards and piled up. The bullet exited.

 

The 125 gr., .30 caliber AccuTip devastated this mule deer's heart.

 

Oh, and, yeah. With reference to the post yesterday about how well you know your deer. This mule deer had whitetail antlers!

 

This mule deer had a typical eight point whitetail rack. There were no indications this was a hybrid cross.
