.308 155gr BBT
« on: November 11, 2019, 02:24:21 AM »
Ok the state of Texas last year started allowing hunting for whitetail with air rifles. I had the 135gr BBT but the state has a 150gr min. So I got the 155gr mold, I think it is now called 154. Using Rotometals 1:40 alloy my drop at 150.5gr. After getting the rifle dialed in with the new bullets I felt confident in taking a deer. With my bullet trajectory I determined 50yd min and a max of 100yds. To much hold under closer than 50yds. Beyond 100yds has to much hold over and power is falling off. So I sighted in for 75yds. I took a doe at 80yds from a tower blind. The bullet entered the neck and went thru the lung and heart, exiting the lower chest. She ran 40-50yds. I'm posting the target picture but not sure if it's ok to post a picture of the doe.

Just FYI, the way the Texas airgun regulations can be a little confusing. You can shoot any bullet you would like as long as it is .30 cal or larger and producing 215 Foot pounds of energy or more.

Anyway, congratulations on the successful hunt and the good groups
