The Pie Plate test...

Someone smarter than I am once told me your personal range limit is where every shot goes into a Pie Plate. For some in this forum that is really far, others are not capable of doing it at 100 yards in actual shooting positions. A Whitetail isn't that hard to kill if you put your bullet into that Pie Plate size kill zone. That is assuming that the bullet is of suficent mass and construction to hang together and do its job. The more I see Deer and Elk killed the more I agree with this theory. You can't kill em quickly if you don't hit em in the right place. The Whitetail is a wonderful animal and deserves to die quickly.
