Well I'm fixing to head up 'nuth on my farm for another opening deer season. This year instead of hunting a meadow from a stand I'm gonna set it up in a holler' that is a main runway for some nice deer. It is in the woods and brush and instead of using my usual 140 grain ballistic tipped handload (in .270 caliber) for long range shooting i am thinking of making up some slow ballistic tip 130- grain bullets for using in the woods(close range shooting). The problem I am having is the ballistic tipped bullets are explosive at close range. This is what I have on hand figured I would use them, and the 130 compared to the 140 grain bullets have a different color tip for ease of knowing what I am loading in my rifle. But I am thinking maybe just buying a box of some 150 grain round nose bullets for the woods. Any help or past experiences would be appreciated.
