I currently am shooting a 6.5 Creedmoor and I’m seeing so much debate on shooting close and bullets fragmenting and bullets not passing through so no blood trail. I have shot 3 bucks with mine this year (just got it) one being the best buck of my life so far. The first two deer shot with Sierra game king 70 yards and 40 yards both dropped immediately I follow the back of the front leg up to center mass or a little lower and pull the trigger. The third buck was my first handloads of ELDX 143 at app. 2700 fps deer was shot at 60-70 yards and ran about 30 yards, pass through decent blood trail. I hunt in very thick wooded areas, I feel like I need a blood trail. What are yalls thoughts? If you shoot a deer without pass through and bullet sticks on the inside hide of the deer and the deer runs, how do you find it? Is there more to this? I can’t wrap my head around searching for a deer with no blood trail. I know you want 90% of energy to dump into the deer and just pop out the other side. I’m leaning toward shooting accubonds currently, unless you guys make me see this differently.
