Congrats Wired2track. Those are very nice deer! We switched over to Barnes bullets last year and really like them so far. My wife killed 2 big Canadian bucks with them. I was hoping to recover the bullets to see what they looked like but both of them passed completely through the deer - one quartering to and the other quartering away. Excellent terminal performance though. They both went down within 25 yards.

Last year she used the TMZ-290 grain bullet with the standard blue sabot in her Traditions muzzy with 100 grains of BH209. This year she used a 250 grain Barnes MZ Expander with a Harvester black Crush Rib sabot and the same powder charge in my T/C Pro Hunter. Both loads were very accurate at 100 yards and they both did the job on big deer.

I have tried a lot of bullet, sabot, powder and primer combinations over the years...
