Glad to see you got your rifle............................Any modern 130gr bullet made today will put down
any deer with a well placed shot to the heart,lungs,spine or neck. Might not kill them dead,but will put them down for a 2nd shot if needed. I have never lost a deer with a bullet in the heart/lung area or high lung/spine area with any of the 130gr bullets that I have hunted with.
When I started hunting the Rem bronze-tip or Cor-lok,and the Winchester silver-tip and Pointed spitzter were the top bullets of the day. No such thing as "Boat-tails" or "Poly-tips" back then. Heck,we just got rid of the old 30-40 Krag for the new fancy 30-06 that they said might be better.............then Jack O'Connor came out into the hunting field with a new toy called the 270 and killed everything in sight. (don't know about the Alaskan Kodiac Bear)
but did you know that more deer in the USA at short ranges have been killed with the old................
30-30 Winchester load, than any other round?
Of course there were a lot of cow pokes,bad guys,soldiers and indians back in the old days to help with the
totals !! Still going strong in the forest areas back East !!
Don't hear many that go "GRIZZ" hunting with a 30-30 though...........................
You did good, twice the energy as the old loads and half the bullet drop..............maybe more, that 270 will
do just fine putting venison on the table,for you. If there is too much meat damage you can go to the 140gr bullet with
a little less speed or use the new Remington ultra Bonded 115gr Core-Lokt "low velosity loads" that works great out to 200 yards
with minimal recoil .
