Illinois Buck At 160 Yards With 300-Grain Scorpion PT Gold!
Mark Horst, of Peoria, Illinois with a dandy whitetail buck taken at 160 yards with the 300-grain Scorpion PT Gold.
He was shooting 110 grains of Blackhorn 209 behind the bullet...and says the Green Moutnain barrel of his .50 caliber Knight DISC Extreme will often group the load at 2 inches at 200 yards. At the muzzle, the 300-grain bullet exits the muzzle right at 1,970 f.p.s. - generating 2,580 foot-pounds of knockdown power. At 160 yards, Mark's deer was slammed with about 1,600 foot-pounds of whitetail taking energy.
The big bodied "Prairie State" buck ran about 60 yard and went down for the count.
Good going Mark.
My guess is that Mark now has a new favorite muzzleloader big game hunting bullet!
