I've been using 150s out of mine for years and never had one take more then 2 steps. How big are the deer in AL? What range will you likely be shooting?
IMHO, many hunters have much more gun and bullet then they need to hunt the game they are after. This does nothing but damage meat and pump their ego.
If the pain is lacking so is the discipline...
