November 13 th and 14th there was a deer reduction hunt at Turkey Run State Park in Indiana. I was drawn for this event and opted to take my younger brother with me.
We both caried NEF 44 mag rifles. I was shooting my own loads 200 gr XTPs @ 1800 fps.
The first day I shot an 8 pt at 200 yrds that field dressed 150. I would never had taken a shot that I was not confident of making. I used a laser too know the exact distance and I knew how to shoot this load at that distance. The load worked as expected -- deer droped in its tracks. When skinning the deer I recovered the slug. It was a perfect mushroom and still at 195 gr.
Love those XTPs!
