  • Post your SMK/Match bullet kills

    It seems we have a thread for every other kind if bullet, and maybe if we start another one for SMK's as well as other match bullets, we wont have to discuss the subject on a weekly basis for those wanting to know. I figure if everyone puts up their pics and let inquiring mind's decide for themselves.

    LET'S NOT ALLOW THIS TO TURN INTO ANOTHER DISCUSSION ABOUT HUNTING WITH THEM, JUST POST YOUR KILLS!

    You'll all have to forgive me as mine are almost all repost's [img]<>/blush.gif[/img]

    Also, include all the "good" pics you have of the wound channel,holes, ect. so we can see what has been done.

    I use em for everything, rockchucks:

    I suppose, but lets make sure we make it clear what it is that were shooting, as this thread had heretofore been strictly Sierra Match Kings. As long as we are clear on what match bullet you are shooting, I suppose this thread can mantain its original purpose of informing the public about bullet performance. And to a lesser degree, show all the doubters that it can and is done properly all the time with match bullets.

    • [MENTION=27167]coldboremiracle[/MENTION] :

      Sure, that makes perfect sense, I just don't shoot SMK's all that much and I've been using match bullets for a few years and have accumulated a couple of kills with Amax's. Let me know if this is enough detail, I didn't keep pics of most of the bullets.

      2009: SC whitetails, 2 of 'em on 1 night. Both shot in the neck with 52gr Amax from my AR, both down in their tracks.

      2010: 30-30 Win w/ 155 Amax single loaded into the lever gun (it's what I had handy). 137lb doe, 40yd, down from the treestand through the vertebrae just in front of the shoulder blades, shrapnel of bone hit both lungs, the bullet hit the heart, made a left turn and slide down between the skin and abdominal muscles. I recovered the bullet inside the skin at the pelvic bone. Dirt checked, got up after about 5s and bolted... made it appx 30yd and piled up permanently.

      2011: 6.5Creed w/ 140 Amax, MV ~ 2635fps, doe through the heart from 365yd. Bullet broke a rib going in, shredded up the heard, exited on the offside and uncorked the bilge pump exhaust. She made it <100yd across the field and piled up.

      2012: 6.5Creed w/ 140 Amax, MV ~ 2800fps, doe through the spine from 425yd. Bullet completely punched out the spine (I was about 3" higher than I wanted) and the explosive behavior of the bones shredded up the lungs and she didn't go anywhere with a cut spine.

      5 deer, 3 within 40yd and 2 out past 350yd. All recovered without any issues, all dead from Amax's.

      • Well, as long as we're going this direction, I shall add a few more:

        The one on the right took a 140 Amax from my .260, the one on the left took a 130 Berger (yellow box) from an X47


        Bugsy here took all 77 grains from a Nosler match:


        A single 162 Amax to the neck fell this beauty:


        From the SAUM:


        Another 162 Amax dropped this handsome little fellow:

        Here is the impact:

        The remains of his heart, from 435yds @ estimated 2500fps:

                • Here is another fresh one fellas, I just hung him up in the shed to age. Dad shot this one this morning with one of my new favorite bullets; the Barnes Match Burner, this one was a 140gr Match burner fired from Dad's recently rebuilt pre-64 mod 70 in .264Win Mag. A very, very badass rifle. One shot was all it took, put this guy to bed. Look at the bullet hole:





                  You could see well down into his chest through the big hole, and there was huge amounts of blood and lung tissue coming out the hole.

                  Good times.

                    • If anyone could pm me and let me know how to post the big pictures that would be cool.

                      Here are two of of mine from last year. Need to get some more this year. 415 yards on the yote and 380 on the pig, both with the 175 SMK in 308

                      • I forgot to mention the total number of steps those two took after the shot... Zero.

                        I have high shouldered at least 15 elk with 175 SMK and none were able to go more than a few feet, never tracked any of them. Of course all of those shots were where they needed to be. All between 50 to 400 yards I've never seen anything run from a well placed head shot either

                          Elk hunts already came and went, all I got was a deer tag, so were making the most of it today.

                          • This is pig #5 using SMK's in my new 300 Blackout in 30 days.

                            Ear shot with a 155 Palma with 1970fps muzzle velocity at 100 yards. Not a speed demon by any stretch of the imagination but the load shoots very good through my rifle. While this was my 1st venture using a hyper sonic load in the blackout it's still fairly quiet.

                              • TERRIBLE cell phone photo, but:



                                223AI, 80gr A-Max @ 2890fps, 65yd head shot. Bullet entered just in front of the left ear and blew the top right skull off; everything from the inside of the right eye to the right ear was gone and I could have put my closed fist in the cavity.

                                Hope to have better pictures of new kills in a few weeks...

                                          Shot this little guy from 125yds with a 162amax going 3150. Pretty devastating.

                                            • I wish this was true for me. I hunt coyotes a cp times a month with call, only saw a few here and most were in a dead run. After so many pics of DRT animals, I took my 20" 5R with my match 175smk load @2760, turned on the call and in five minutes I was looking at a big boy through my NF NSX, @160yds. I pulled dead on his shoulder, fired and watched him hit the ground and just shake, it was yelping some but other than that nothing. I went to get my decoy and my son yelled "it's up" I put the ret on him again and shot him again, and he hit the ground again, so I went to get my pistol, came back and the dang dog was gone, plenty of blood for 20yds, me and some friends couldn't find a drop. Shot one the next day same gun with a berger hunting VLD and it fell DRT. ? I'll always buy em for my 6.5CM, 260, and .308's for match shoots, but not again.

                                                  I dont mean to contradict you, or judge your skills, but without pics of the coyote, how are we to be sure what happened? Without the pics I dont think your experience is a reason to discount or endorse one way or another.
