I’m not a fan of heavy for cartridge bullets but the 180 PP were the only ones that shot acceptly accurate in a 7600 I had at the time. I shot two medium bucks with them. One went 20 yards and one dropped at the shot. I honestly don’t remember a lot of bloodshot meat but will admit I didn’t pay that close attention.
I’m talking northern Maine distances on snow. The deer that ran a bit left a good blood trail. I still have a few boxes as my current 308s shoot 150-165 grain bullets well.
I can’t give a glowing review or be down on them. They worked in a very inaccurate rifle
Thanks for the replies. My 7600 doesn't like 150's. I have quite a few 180 power points. I had forgotten that I had them. I would buy them over the years when I would see them.Some have an $11 price tag on them. Lol, those were the days! I had a mentor when I was growing up, akorean war Marine. To him, there was only one 30 caliber bullet weight and that was 180.
I generally like the heaviest bullet weight in any caliber I own...no “science” behind my preference, just prefer them and work with them. 180s in my BAR (not WW) perform adequately and dropped my last 2 bucks within 40 yards meaning they did a 40 yds or less death run (lung shots)
