  • 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.

  • WT Deer, buck, head down, entry at base of neck, and this is the exit after removal of the leg to show the exit better.

    167 yards, dropped where he stood.

    308 - 175 SMK @ 2630.

    • First time I used the BHA 77gr. SMK based MK 262 MOD 1 cartridge on whitetail (2006?): at under 100yds. with bullet missing the vertebral column. This doe was being trailed by several nice bucks but none would make the minimum for our management program. I was on foot trailing behind the mob hoping she would pick up a shooter. When she stopped to look at all the bucks bird-dogging her, she busted me bird-dogging the bucks. The game was over with her being the only shooter available. As she was standing with just her head turned to look back, I shot her in the throat. With all the major blood vessels on that side blown out, she dropped and bled out quickly. Made for some very fine table fare.

      Entrance:


      Exit:



      Colt 10" 1x7 M4 LWT. upper: the bedding area I was hunting is a massive thicket/switch cane jungle were bipods and high power optics are unsuitable.

      • 7 mag 168 gr Berger vld. Muzzle 3050fps. 110yds. There is a reason for the feed sack.


        308 win 178 gr Amax. 2610 fps. 336 yds. Typical exit of every deer I've shot, golf ball sized.


        Same load as above.


        Same load as above. 275 yds


        7 mag 162 gr Amax. Muzzle 2880 fps.


        178 gr Amax Muzzle 2610fps


        Just a few I have pictures of on my phone. Never used the smk's but they seem to do some dirty work on critters.

          I shot a mulie about 18 years ago that had a broken front shoulder. We had passed him up 3 different days while he was in good health. He is a 3 point, and one side forks the back, and the other side forks the front. Weird.

          I have also shot other 3 point dear in the same general area, and half fork the fronts, and half fork the backs.

                    The pictures really don't do it justice. The temperature was in the low 20's and the sun made that path of blood glow red. The buck ran about 20-30 yards and then collapsed. The fact that they can run with that much blood loss is phenomenal.

                        • Thanks Reel, was just about to ask about that bullet. I recently switched from Berger 175gr BT LRs to the Hornady Match 178gr running 45.5gr of varget which is admittedly hot, going to have to back down to 45.2. That said i've taken two deer with match bullets (.308 and .223) both neck shots both dropped. Had my sako .260 out today and stumbled upon this guy walking to the stand at 6:00am.


                          Well last i shot my .260 i missed so i wasn't entirely sure the gun was shooting right, might have been a mis-ranged target. Either way wasn't confident enough to take the shot. So carrying ole faithful out there tomorrow. Question is should i go for neck or behind the shoulder? Given my past two accounts i'm thinking neck.

                          Anyhow here is my contribution to the thread. My 175gr BT LR kill 320yds a year or two ago.

                            • Here is one more contribution to the thread. We had a awesome day afield this evening. First my son made a perfect 537 yard shot on a big doe. Next up my brother first time ever behind a long range rig made a 557 yard shot on the doe that was traveling with my sons doe, DRT! Now he says he is hooked! Then at last light I made a 325 yard shot. All three taken with my .308 and 178 Amaxs. 1416 combined yards with three rounds fired. Bullets performed and mine and my sons fell within 25 yards.

                              BTW Blackops2, you won't be disappointed with the HPBT bullets.

                              • Glad to hear it. Shot the .260 today turns out it was just fine. I must've mis-ranged last year.

                                      And the Muley doe @ 185yd. Same combo. Had to hit a little back due to tree branch. Softball size exit.

                                      Both went about 50yds, & fell.

                                            • Just got my new rifle built in time for the Oklahoma holiday special doe season. .284 Winchester built on a Remington 700 L/A with a Benchmark barrel, shooting 168 grain SMK with 53 grains of H4350. I've never hunted with SMK bullets but figured I'd give them a go on the recommendation of the Smith that built my rifle. Had this doe come in at 105 yards and stop broadside, quarting a little. After being hit she jumped about a foot in the air then ran about 25 yards, stopped and fell over. From the point she was hit to where she stopped the doe spewed blood everywhere. When I gutted her, we found part of the heart was gone/mush and both lings were mush. There were two exit wounds, each about a inch diameter, so I'm guessing the bullet must of seperated or something. I was pretty impressed with how the SMK performed.

                                                • 175grn SMK (my own handload). Shot through the white spot on the neck, she was staring right at me about 50 yards away with only the top of her should, neck, and head visible above the brush. It left a small entry and about a quarter sized exit (where the two twigs are is where it exited and they are kind of blocking it). It blew her spinal column right out and she dropped dead in her tracks. Not an inch of movement except some minor nerve twitches.
