Posted: Nov 18, 2011

My daughter Bailey spotted a 6pt and 2 does moving into a thicket and we set up for shot opportunity. The 2 does busted out of the thicket and took off running. We were waiting for the 6pt to show but the 6pt moved father into the thicket. We prepared to move when in a small clearing in the thicket this 8pt point stood up and presented a perfect broadside shot I took it, the buck jumped twice, stopped and fell over dead. The Hornady SST Slug performed perfectly, the shot was about 75 yrds. The slug went through both shoulders taking out the heart and lungs. I have been using Hornady ammo for 20 yrs there is no need for me to use anything else, every firearm that I have used with Hornady ammo has given me exceptional accuracy Thank you so much you have a life long customer.
