    Our company took some customers on a hunt this weekend at the West Ranch in Vanderbilt, Texas. I got to shoot a management buck. Scored around 110. Not outstandingly big, but the biggest I've killed thus far. I've always been more of a meat hunter not obsessed with big horns. That may change:o
    100 yd shot. Buck ran approx 1 foot. I guess you could call it more of a collapse/slide:rofl:
    Corlockt 150 gr. .308
    Scored approx. 110
    Didn't penetrate the skin on the exit side, but it did bulge it out about 1.5". So I was able to retreive the bullet.
    The deer had a deformity on it's right front dew claws.

    The buck

    I was just messin with ya. Yesterday when I went out, I was cold and it was windy, I wore jeans and multiple layers of Carharrt hoodies and shit. Figured I was in a tree stand way up high so camo wouldnt matter. Still got a coyote to come in so I guess jeans and black Carharrt clothes work ok for hunting:)

    Iwas very impressed with the corlokt bullet staying together. My shot placement was not great and blew apart one shoulder. I was shaking lot and my heart was trying to jump out of my chest:noes:

    This all took place yesterday morning. I didn't realize how long I'd been on the stand until I stepped out to go look at him and the feeder went off:rofl: It was 7:00am. I had to sit there for over 2 hours waiting for my ride to come pick me up:mamoru:

    Nice buck.

    I didnt see shit this weekend.

    I did hit a possum at 10 yards with a .50 muzzle loader... that was interesting.

    During the two hours I was sitting there, still excited but growing more and more bored by the minute, these landed. They were squawking and shit. I really wanted to shoot one at close range (15 yds). I wasn't sure of the legalities of shooting one, and I didn't want to have to explain it to anyone:rofl:

    Every Corelokt I've ever found just about shredded apart and averaged about 45% weight retention :o They'll do the job of course, and I'm sure they're killed more game than any other bullet, but I like to use something that stays together better, especially in my .243.

    That's great. I wish that we were allowed to hunt deer with rifles in Ohio.

    This one kept right at 66% of it's original weight. I will be switching to a different bullet since the only wieght they offer in .308 is 150. I'd like to move up to a 168.

    Yeah. I plan to start getting some reloading equipment together pretty soon. Hornady is one of the bullets I've been told work well.

    I like Noslers but unless you find a bullet thats amazing alot of it comes down to personal preference.

    That's strange they only offer it in 150, I'd figure a 165 or 180 would sell. When you start reloading buy some Corelokts, they're cheap as hell so they're great to practice with, I pay $7 for 100 while I usually pay closer to $18 for 50 Partitions. I need to find something cheaper to hunt with, damned lackluster 6mm selection :hs:
