blind_nija Maybe more about experience with the SST than one deer than ran a little bit. I have shoot deer from 20feet to 425 yards over close to 20 years and never had a bullet leave the deer. Hard ever found the bullet in one piece . Never had a deer take more than a couple steps before going down but I am using a fast 7139gr mm. You do need to pick your shots well to get a good top of heart bottom of lung shoot to drop them quickly or a spine shoot and that's not practicle .
There is another company that offers the same performance level with the same 95gr sst from Underwood Ammo . Theyrun specials regularly with No Shipping charges on most holidays . Make a deal for great defense handgun or hunting ammo to your door.
There is one bullet than can open up your bullet placement and can give you pass thru shots. Many ammo companies load the Barnes TSX or TTSX bullet in ether 80 or 85gr. IDon't let this lighter bullet mislead you , it is a bone smashing fast bullet that can travel thru a lot of tissue , always expands and stays together and if all you have is a quatering to you or away shot its Not a problem with ether barns bullets. Cost is higher but still not much for a died deer out to 300 yards . The barnes bullet is loaded buy buffalo bore , piece ammo, aka ted nugent, silver state armory , federal "trophy copper "barnes and buy BARNE ammo and hornady has there own version called a GMX bullet . Just another choice to try.
