Just got back from deer hunting in Georgia with my 30/30 Handirifle. Took two deer the first morning. One head shot while field dressing the first deer.Used 125 Gr. Ballistic tips and was not real pleased with the performance. The jacket separated from the lead core and did not exit. Looked more like a Varmint round with the one shot in the head. Did not have to track that one. Plenty of fresh deer in the freezer now. Going to try the 45/70 next on deer.
