I use the 165 Ballistic Tips for Whitetail Deer. These bullets stop the deer "Dead in their tracks". I have yet to track one. They all fall within sight. I will confess that the furthest shot so far was 60 yards.
These bullets will produce the results hunters require.Excellent accuracy & 1 shot kills consistantly.I have used these in my .30-06,.270 win. & .25-06 . Sub MOA accuracy & very rarely does a deer (whitetail) ever get out of sight after the shot.Most drop in there tracks.
These bullets were purchased for a specific purpose. I was thinking that they would be too light, but I suppose due to the ballistics, they ended up being perfect. I would highly recommend them to anyone loading their own ammo. True and accurate is all I can say.
I have used these for many years with excellent results. They are very accurate with a variety of powders over a range of muzzle velocities. Expansion is excellent, and those I have recovered, retained 70% at least, some closer to 80%. I would suggest that this would not be my first choice for Elk, or big bears, but for anything smaller, I believe it to be an excellent choice. The lack of a channelure may make initial seating more labor intensive, but other than that, I'd certainly recommend them.
I have used Nosler Ballistic Tips for a number of years and have found their accuracy and terminal performance on deer size game to be excellent. The exit wound will not lead to wasted meat when using the 180 grain bullet with a large .30 caliber such as a 300 RUM for a long distance shot. These bullets are a real value when compared to other high quality bullets.
best deer sized game bullet to date for long range
Date:May 4, 2011
i have used the "tip" from 6MM to .338 for deer sized game. it's accuracy is outstanding ! terminal preformance on game is great. they can be depended upon to initiate expansion at lower impact velocities when shots on the longer side are needed.however, please use a heavier constructed bullet for game larger than deer/antelope.
These are excellent bullets. They load smooth and with a little RL-22 and ignition, they hit where you place the crosshairs. That's what puts the game in my freezer. At about 3500 fps, the 150 gr Nosler ballistic hunting bullets perform just as well on deer and wild pigs as they do on paper. And at this price, I seem to put alot of them down range and have difficulties keeping them stocked up on my reloading shelf. Both my brother and I shoot ballistic tip noslers in our 300 RUM's. Thanks, Cabela's, for keeping these on your shelf and at a good price. I'm sold on 'em.
