I have a reasonable amount of experience with ballistic tips ( accutip, Silver tips, nosler BTs ) in the following cartridges : .243 win, 7mm-08, .308 and .30-06. probably 30+ deer between myself and family members. Our deer here in western NY are big fat corn fed deer , usually running 150-175 lbs for a buck, with a few hitting 200lbs.
I have yet to recover a single BT bullet from any deer shot broadside in the ribs. entrance holes are around .50" and exit holes are about an inch across. I wonder where on the deer that people are hitting deer with BTs and ruining so much meat...the shoulder?
It is by far my favorite bullet design for deer.
