Sierra 25 cal. 90 gr. HPBT is it reliable for whitetails?

This bullet is included in Sierra's GameKing group however I have always been skeptical on using a hollow point on deer. Back in the early 1970s I worked up some loads in my Savage Model 99-A 250-3000 and they turned out to be the most accurate loads ever for that rifle. The primary function of this rifle is to carry with me on ATVs, tractors, combines, horseback and in my trucks to shoot coyotes, feral pigs and varmints.

One November morning I was spreading manure in a field and spotted a nice 12 point buck laying on a sunny hillside about 200 yards away. Could not pass up this opportunity. Closed the distance on him to about 100 yards, stopped the tractor but left it running with PTO engaged on the spreader, uncased the gun and slowly dropped into a prone position in the snow. I quickly took aim figuring to take him bedded, but just then a flock of turkeys flew off the hillside headed for the spreaded manure trail in the snow, which unnerved the buck and he stood up broadside to me. I jerked the cross-hairs behind his front shoulder and fired. The deer now on the run offered me a couple shots with the first one causing a stumble and second one spilling him. After close inspection three wounds were found...one high on the right shoulder, one at the right elbow and when I turned him over there was one behind the left shoulder. Later that day I skinned him out and found a bullet lodged behind a rib opposite the entrance hole that weighed 37 grains. There was just schrapnel left from the bullets that hit the shoulder and elbow. The elbow was fractured. There was massive damage to the shoulder muscles. This was the first and last time I took a poke at a deer with the hollow points.

An unexpected turn of events allowed my son, who is in the Army, to come home for a few days last Thanksgiving. He wanted to hunt deer with the 99 for nostalgic reasons as it was the gun he started out with. I told him I did not have any 100 grain bullets to reload and the next day was opening day so he would have to shoot the 90 grain hollow points. He made a nice lung shot (150 yds) on a old dry doe. The bullet just wasted a large portion of the lungs. A respectable eight-point buck took two shots to keep it down. First shot was taken with deer facing him at 125 yards and second shot was a high lung shot. After we got the hide off the buck we could see the performance of the first shot. It entered the sternum and slightly punctured the left lung. The bullet weighed 41 grains. On the high lung shot which was taken on the run broadside, the bullet nicked a rib on entry went thru both lungs and was found in two pieces under the hide opposite the bullet entrance.

Is anyone getting good reliable results on deer with this bullet?

In light of current events and since I hunt alone (no friends/8 dollar driveway boy), from this day forward I will be carrying a slip of paper with my campfire handle and the date and will place it in each kill shot to verify validity of all game taken. Might even use it for cock pitchers too, not sure yet on that.

Henceforth, The Campfire Roundoak Edict shall be in place whence any poster must provide irrefutable proof of legitimacy when posting hero shots.

That is all.

Could well be because libtard have no concept of truth or honesty they only believe the lies they tell.mb

I have zero desire to shoot a white tail off any land I don't own. NONE. Never done a "trip" for it, never will. Others might - fine for them, not for me.

That’s you, most on here think they have the 24hour campfire bro connection and will try to use that as in to hunt with people.. I guarantee you bag of dump pickled eggs roundoak was getting pm’s people asking about hunting with him..
