  • 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:

    More deer, This one is huge!!

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 agree with you by my personal experience also with ( coyotes & 175 smk's ) . I'm NOT talking deer or any other game 'just Coyotes' .
    I have shot more than a few coyotes in my life . 175smk .30 cal. ( SUCK Donkey Balls ) results were a far cry from satisfactory when compares to V-max,Speer or any other Varm. bullet . ( Honestly ) I have got great results and I will use 'pointed soft-point' before I will ever use another .30 175 smk again for Coyote .

    • Any pictures of these poor performances? As with GHB, how are we to be sure that it was the bullet failing and not just a poor shot?

      This is a young coyote that got hit with a .308 175 smk, it almost gutted him, my fist could fit through the hole:

      • Yote at 415 yards. 175 SMK out of the 18" 308. Dead on arrival. The exit was nasty like CBM's. Not to brag or anything but... He was trotting into a 3-5 mph wind. My best moving animal shot to date. Right where I wanted it.

          hey, Nice Baby Dog there . What's that weigh ? .. like 7 Lbs. ?

          Don't read something into what I wrote . ( I never said ) that I did Not kill the dogs I shot with the .30 175 smk's .
          I said that I get far superior results with other bullets of other design that I shoot . When I compare what I do, with one bullet over another on coyotes. Other bullets make me Happier more than .30 175 smk's on coyotes .
          I do love shooting .30 175 smk's . I have used them on Coyotes . but they are on the bottom of my list for Coyotes .

            Maybe, if you give him bath. I didn't realize it had to be a big coyote to count. Maybe someday when I get a softcock I'll get to shoot a big one Nevertheless, he is dead, with a big hole in him from a 175SMK, where is your picture of one with a small "donkey ball sucking" hole? And maybe a picture of an acceptable hole from a superior bullet like a vmax for comparison? This thread is full of evidence albeit anecdotal, but where is yours to the contrary?

              I'm not trying to stir the pot but I'm curious why you consider this thread to be anecdotal evidence?

              Lots of different rifles, lots of different animals, lots of different conditions. The only two things common to every pic posted in this thread are that the target was alive at one point and is no longer, and the SMKs. As far as I'm concerned this is fairly objective, empirical evidence. One slave action and barrel firing thousands of rounds into inanimate ballistic gel is kind of a poor way to test terminal ballistics if you ask me. Then again, no one has, or ever will ask me.

                dude just some healthy flipping of shit on the small Coyote . I have shot some small ones before .
                My motto used to be, 'and sometimes still is ', 1st one runs-in gets it in the face . and I think I shot @ least 2 yearlings this fall, but also I did let pass a shitload of them because i think they are Dumb as Hell and it's just not worth it, and It just Dirties-up the spot and makes it harder to get the older experienced ones there latter when I call .

                ( For Me ) over the years I get pretty relaxed and comfortable with shooting Coyote . When things workout I like to take as much time as possible and watch and study dogs before pulling the trigger . I like to Hear the hit and study the hit . ( For Me ) There is a Big difference in the way different bullets hit and kill Coyotes .
                ( For You ) You might not think there is a difference between killing & dead . ( For Me ) ' I believe there is ' . I kill Coyotes better with also more satisfaction in the way they die with bullets other than the 175 smk's . I don't like the way Dogs die with .30 175's smk's out my .308 win.

                    I said that because this whole thread is basically on the honor system, there is no proof that these kills are even caused by SMK's or match bullets. I dont mean to derail my own thread, Im just saying that we all need to take this with a grain of salt. I will say though, the thread is full of overwhelming evidence that these bullets work just fine on game.

                    [MENTION=7848]softcock[/MENTION], I know your just giving shit. I just wanted an excuse to say softcock, I was gonna say wilted cock, but that was over the line. As far as the bullets are concerned, in my humble experience, the only animals that didn't die either outright, or VERY quickly, were not hit as well as they could have been. And Im talking about animals from prairie dogs to elk, if it didn't go down, it was the shooter's fault.

                      My comment was Post to the Thread, was about agreeing with a Poster on how .308 175 smks suck DonkeyBalls on Coyotes . Not talking about Prairie Dogs to Elk .

                      Talking about killing with one bullet type/design from one single manufacture from Prairie Dogs to Elk . The Thread topic will NEVER experience a satisfaction of completion . It's the perfect storm with endless, fruitless avenues of investigation .

                      • I don't know about coyotes with 175 SMK's, but I went on a hunt several years ago using a 300 Win with 190 SMK's and shot a Barbery Sheep at 318 yards right behind the front left leg. I thought I was missing the sheep and ended up putting a 180 Nosler AB in the rifle to bring him down. When I examined the Barbery, he had three entry bullet holes the size of a pencil no bigger than a soft ball group behind his left shoulder and three of the exact same size on the opposite side. Then, there was the huge 180 AB hole just behind them. I don't know if that is a common trait of the 190 SMK, but I'll never use them again. However, my 250 and 300 SMK's work like a charm in my 338 RUM and Lapua. I was using the Federal Match 190 SMK's in my 300 because they shot under MOA compared to the AB which was just over MOA.

                        However, looking through all the posts once more, clearly the SMK's have a proven track record of impressive kills!

                        Just my two cents worth.

                        • [MENTION=7848]softcock[/MENTION], fruitless? This thread is PACKED with animals of every shape and size from every continent damn near. Id say it been pretty fruitful.

                          Nonetheless, we have digressed. This thread wasnt about discussing bullet X over Y, just posting your kill pics so others can decide if they wanna use them. So again I'll say, if you wanna, post whatcha got.

                                • 175 SMK out of my Thunder Ranch at 55 yards. Stumbled upon him as I was leaving and had given up for the evening. Bullet entered through the upper chest and exited through the left shoulder. Died 20ft from where it was hit. Old lady wouldn't let me clean it in the courtyard so into the shop it went.

                                    • My wife shot him this morning... Ground blind, good rest, 105 yards out. The deer was looking straight towards the blind when the 175smk dropped him. Very small entry wound, no exit, and made a mess of everything inside. It's her first buck ever so I'm proud...

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

                                                Something really interesting here...note the muley on top has it's splits to the front while the Nevada deer has his splits in the rear tines. I've seen that all over, and for the life of me it baffles me as to why one deer will split rear tines first and another deer will split front tines. Yet, both are three pointers.

                                                Every shot serves a purpose, whether accurate or inaccurate. It will always tell you what you did, and did not do, right. Even if all you have is a fraction of a second to make it, learn from it. So the next one is even better.

                                                The pen is only mighty when it is backed by the sword.

                                                • Shot a doe with a 285grn Hornady HPBT Match last week, 200yds. It was the strangest thing i'd ever seen in a large animal. It entered right side and exit left, mangled the liver, lungs. The bullet tore a 6" exit hole and evacuated the stomach, intestines, and part of the liver and lungs out of the hole without even rupturing the stomach. I've shot several of prairie dogs that looked similar with a 22-250. I would post a pic but I don't think it's appropriate. Needless to say it didn't go anywhere.

                                                    Was able to try out the .338 Edge in large corn field today. Made a 670 yard shot.... hit her a little far back and she ran maybe 200 yards into the woods. I drug her down further onto a 4 wheeler path for the recovery and pics.
