Wednesday November 7th, I dropped a beautiful 10 point buck at 60 yards with 1 - 12 guage SST Sabot slug round.

I followed him with my scope from 70 yards from a 20 foot ridge and fired 1 round. The SST hit exactly where I pointed - just at the back of the heart. One accurate shot hammered this buck - leaving a 2 foot wide blood trail for about 20 yards as he jumped. I cross bow hunt all through the off season and have only fired 1 shot with my 12 guage in 2 years. That's OK because it only takes 1 shot when I use the SST 12 guage 300 grain round.
