Got my climber, Browning custom 270
100 grain lead.
On a green field praying he walks out!
Haven't killed a deer all year!

1 question.. With all the wind and stuff
Should be grunting??
How often ?

Thanks a lot
Good luck to all!!

It's 50/50 on the grunting....if a non-shooter or a doe comes in, more noise just allows them to pinpoint you. Your rifle can shoot farther than you can grunt.

A 130gr or 150gr bullet better utilizes the knockdown power of a .270

My gun is sighted in at inch high at a 100 yards.

I got a 130 ballistic & 130 lead? Which one?

I agree on the 130 grain. I would wait to switch
because they may shoot significantly different. In the past I had to switch when I ran out in a small town and was shocked that they shot a lot more off than I expected. Personally I like lead tip. The ballistic tips are great but seems
like sometimes they don't leave a good blood trail. I guess they
expand so rapidly that there is no exit wound. Just an opinion though. Good luck!

You said 100gr in your original post, maybe that was a typo.

As far as ballistic vs soft point, my preference is soft point, but as stated already, whatever you sighted in with is what you should hunt with as shot placement is key more than anything else.

Good looking view. Good luck!

The nerve....I bet it wasn't a 270 at all!!! I bet it was a 223 and WE ALL KNOW A 223 WON'T KILL A DEER!!!
