Well... I shot the 69 grain bullets today at 100 yards. The projectiles did not yaw and they seemed to shoot fairly accurate (as accurate as they could be with a 1X sight). I shot them into some homemade ballistic gel that a friend of mine made, and the BTHP did not expand very well at all. I will not shoot deer with them (I decided against it when another member told me that they would not expand). The 55 grain Federal shells that I got seem to do fine in the gel, I think I will use those for yotes, as far as deer go, I am going to get another 7mm-08 and use that. The 55 grain shells opened up a lot but there was not a lot of penetration.
Thanks for all the help with the ammo selection. I think that I will be going coyote hunting in the morning. Wish me luck.
