I've always hunted with 7mag or 300mag and i understand their ballistics pretty well but clueless to AR. My 1st thought was 77gr Buffalo Bore but i saw a chart where they dont expand much and dont retain their weight well at all. The chart was done by military and the 2 best looking results were Winchester 64gr power point & the m855???? Thanks for any input guys
I'm kinda like you on this, I only kill deer for meat as I have enough antlers on the wall. I would just as soon kill a fat doe as a ten point buck, seriously!
My goal is to put three deer in my freezer each year, mostly ground and cubed. Very little meat goes to waste this way although I've been saving some recipes from outdoor hub and a few other sites for steaks and roast which sound great!
My use of ground venison can be spaghetti, hamburger helper, and your usual hamburgers and hamburger steaks along with many more options!
One of our favorite is to mix 1/2 pint of Dales Seasoning with 6 lb venison and mix well then use a jerky shooter to load the dehydrator! You can use red cayenne pepper on the lower racks and have both hot and mild jerky at the same time, good if you have kids around!
As for the cubed, just sprinkle liberally with Tony's Cajun seasoning roll in a little flour and fry just until lightly brown, serve with eggs and home made biscuits for breakfast, I guarantee this will become an instant favorite!
