    What rounds are you shooting with your .308 and how far was the shot the first time you shot him?

    Great buck and a hunting story that will be told and retold for years to come. Congratulations.

    We have had bad luck with the superformance! Lack of penetration. My Brother shot a deer at 80 yds in the shoulder with a .243 using superformance and the bullet blew apart at impact and never penetrated to the vitals.

    @Tom thanks!!

    @Dustin yea same. I got the rifle late in the year and the superformance was the first one I tried and it shot really good so I stuck with it. I’ve had inconsistent results with it as well. Curious to see what I find

  • A Buddy of mine shot a Buck a couple of years ago, he shot it right behind the front shoulder and it should’ve been a heart shot, it ran off and we looked for it for several hours and went back the next morning and looked for it, never found it. Two days later he showed up on camera feeding and he had a wound behind his shoulder that you could put both of your fists in, long story short we got pictures of him every few days for the rest of the season and by the end of the season he was healed up and just had a little bald spot where the wound was. He passed the Buck up several times during season and we watched him heal up and go on and live healthy and happy lol. They’re some tough animals.

    @Stephen thats nuts!

  • @Robinson Yep, every week his wound was a little smaller and by the end of the season it was a little bald spot probably about the size of a can of Copenhagen lol.
