Roe hunting season in Germany
Product: 270 Cal .277 130 gr GMX®
Posted: May 3, 2012
Dear Hornady community,
I started reloading recently for my Mauser M96 sttraight bolt rifle with Leupold Vari X3 in 270 Win unsing the GMX with 53,5 grains N160 and Remington 9 1/2 Mag primers. Loads according to your recommendation.
Rounds at the range (5 shots in a quarter) showed nice precision so I was looking forward to May first when season starts here. During the first days I shot 3 bucks and one female (all one year old) at distances between 150 and 220 yards.
These bullets are amazing! I usually shoot behind the shoulder a bit high but below spine. Deers all do not show reaction to the impact; they simply freeze for a second and then fall down aside!
First shot I thought I missed and got quickly ready for a second shot but in the meantime, it was over!
Extremely little damage to the meat, great impact efficiency and super precise! No aiming adjustment necessary for the different distances (adjusted the scope to 4 cm / 100 m; sorry guys, I am metric)
I am in love now...... ready for the other 22 deer I have to shoot this season...
Greets from Germany!
