We were given the opportunity to do some population control this summer at a friend's farm. My wife and I loaded our rifles and went out and on the first night I harvested a nice mature doe with my 30-06. I was using hand loads with Hornady 150 gr Spire Points. The doe dropped in her tracks!!! Less than a week later my wife shot a another one using Hornady 95 gr SST in 243 Win. I used the same gun and load the next night to drop this doe from 200 yds, she didn't even know what hit her. All three deer that we harvested this past week were one shot drop to the ground hits with Hornady ammo and bullets!!!
