    Nothing wrong with passing up a shot. I do it 10 times more than I do taking a shot.

    One of the biggest buck I have ever seen only presented only an azz shot as after I jumped him out of his bed. I passed on the shot as I would have ruined a lot of premium eating. He was 30"+ and I am sure would have scored close to 200. He lived to pass on his genes as I just couldn't do it!

    In defense of Texans..... I've lived and hunted in Texas all of my life. I never heard of the "Texas heart shot" until the internet allowed me to interact with folks from faraway lands. Everybody I know passes when a butt is all they have to shoot at. Seems like it should be named "Yankee heart shot" or "California heart shot" or something more descriptive of the locale of its use and origin.

    Well another Mule Deer fell to Noslers BT. I have nothing but good things to say about them Quality bullet just use them at the recommend velocity on there web site. I'm pushing a 264 Win Mag 120 gr.BT at 3225 FPS like I said before one shot one Deer again this fall shot between 200 & 250 just a point and shoot no rangeing. I had complete passthrough on a quarting away shot about 22 inches plus penetration and still going.

    I think I may need to check into new bullets instead of the over the counter Hornady IB. Your brother told me you liked Nosler, 1100 Remington Man. Wish I could have hunted with you all this past season. I had a good time last year hunting with you all. Sounds like you all had a good time this year.

I have used Sierras fo 50 years and they are great bullets, use them for everything except in my .300 Wby where I use 180 gr Nosler Partitions for elk & larger animals.
    i have used the bt in light 22 cal as well as heavier 30 cal i think the the 30 cal were acubond
    the 22 cal like you said make a mess out of everything in its path
    the 30 cal acubonds worked awsome in deer and elk while i have only shot out to the 100 -125 range with them
    i think when they are super sonic speeds they tend to expand way to much for hunting pourpous
    i guess my point is i like them in either situation exploding varmits or pile driving elk
    hope to run into you out in the feild some time and we can swap stories

    I started using the ballistic tip bullets in my 270wsm because they were available and I found they really shot great. I have taken a number of mule deer, whitetails and antelope with them, but I suspected that a blow up caused me to lose a big whitetail 2 years ago. I switched to accubond for an elk hunt last year and continued to use them this year for whitetails. Problem was that they shot through without leaving much of an exit hole. This makes me think they might not expand enough on the small deer we have in the South. I think I will go back to the ballistic tip for deer.

    Hey C.C. Congrats on a successful lope hunt buddy. Sorry to hear the B-Tips let you down. I didn't read every word of this thread,so I apologize for any redundancy. If those were old stock Ballistic Tips I would expect just that sort of performance. I've been curious about them of late,after hearing there were some jacket taper changes made to them. So,I cut a couple in half a year or so ago. A 150gr .284,and a 180gr .30. The .30 cal came from a box that actually denoted them as being "Hunting" variety bullets. I must say the jacket profile looks pretty good for say 30/06 velocity. Which is where I think the B-Tip excels. Now the .284 150gr was from a box not specifying them as being "Hunting" bullets. There was not nearly as much taper to the jacket. Little if any. I bought these for whitetails via a 7 Remmy mag. The only deer I shot with one was shot in the neck at a little over 250 yds,and not a good representative of bullet performance. Having cut one down I can ssy I wouldn't recommend them for magnum velocities and shoulder or body shots on anything north of varmints. The 180gr .30,at 06 velocities seems to be working just fine here on deer size critters. I wouldn't have any reservations about taking them for elk or such either. Just my observations,and your experience leads me to believe the .257 isn't one of the updated jacket designs.
