I was out hunting on Tuesday 10/30/12 in the rain (from hurricane Sandy). About 30 minutes before the end of legal shooting light, I spotted this buck standing broadside at 275 yards. My glasses were fogging up, the scope was too. I steadied the crosshairs on his right shoulder and squeezed the trigger on my Savage model 116 rifle. The deer dropped from view, but as I looked through the scope I saw the trademark white hind end of a whitetail deer. I hustled over to where I had shot the deer to find that when I hit the deer, the force of the bullet impact had spun him 90 degrees as he fell driving the left tine of his antlers 4 inches into the soggy ground.

I can not tell you enough how much I like the Superformance ammo. FAST, FLAT, ACCURATE, DEADLY!! Nothing else will do Praise the Lord and pass the ammo--Superformance ammo that is!
