While visiting a local gunshop last week I found a couple of boxes of Federal Premium .338 win mag 180gr ballistic tips. They were discontinued by Federal and the gunshop was blowing them out. I had never shot any bullets that light out of my gun so I bought them out of curiousity. Figured that even if they didn't shoot, the brass was worth having. Anyway, they shoot AWESOME. Little tiny groups. My question is this- has anyone ever used this round on a deer and what were the results? Since I bought my .338 I have always shot the 225 AB and have been happy with results. Will the 180 ballistic tip hold together?
