    I got a small buck this AM with the 10MM.

    About 40 yards, quartering to me, impact was a little higher then the base of the neck. Bang flop.

    No exit, but it was a steep angle, IF it had exited it would have been near the ham. I hope to recover the bullet if it wasn't lost in the gut pile... ::)

    Thanks EBM,

    Is a Rifle better... It's all realitive, more powerful, yes. More accurate. At range maybe. Sure. For me and alot of people it's about the challenge. It's Lmost too easy with a rifle, a bow or hand gun more levels the playing field. (So to speak)
    I broke my back in '03 and can no longer bow hunt. Haven't gotten into Xbows but I am into handguns! LOL...

    I worked up loads with a 200 XTP all summer.... Last min I could not find the 15 I saved and did not have time to load more. So I used the old stand by, Factory Winchester Silver tips!!

    Thanks guys, its not my first hand gun deer, but its my first with a a GLOCK and first with a 10mm! It's a nice birthday present for me!

    CW,

    That's exactly why I deleted the question after thinking about it for a few more minutes. Starting thinking about bows, muzzleloaders, etc. In any case, congratulations and nice shot!

    Meat on the table is a good thing! :)

    Nice job! I don't have the handgun skills to use it for hunting - only used my G20 on finishing shots. Were you shooting with a rest? In a stand?

    Thank you.

    It was a offhand shot at about 40 yards quartering to me.

    Nice clean and humane kill for a responsible sportsman, thats hunting at it's finest... Makes perfect sense to accept a little challenge, yet not so much that it risks a dirty or suffering kill and not too much meat lost... Congrats..

    Congrats!


    Can't see the pictures for some reason...
     
  14. I had been led to believe the 10mm required a crew served weapon. Was I misled?

    Good shot sir, and from all appearances, a quick clean kill.
