I shoot Remington Core-Lokt 100 grain in my Savage Model 11. My # 2 son dropped his first deer with it a couple years back, but we haven't used it much since. We've been trying out some of the other rifles that we have.

A few years back, I shot at a deer that bolted like a scalded rabbit. I was ready to head for the house after that, but my # 1 son said we should at least walk down to where it was standing before I shot at it. Neither one of us could believe it, but there was blood spatter on the ground so we started to follow the blood trail. Sure enough, about 65-70 yards later we found the doe - dead as the proverbial doornail.

It wasn't until field dressing the doe up at the house that we made a really neat discovery. There was a bullet hole right through the doe's heart. May sound a little gross, but I actually stuck my finger right in the hole. I still find it hard to believe that deer ran that far with a bullet hole right through its heart.
