30-30 with ballistic tips.
Nope...just plain old 7.62x39 FMJ
That kill wasn't supposed to happen.
My 8 year old (at the time) wanted to "deer hunt" with an AK. I said fine. Let him go out back in his sweat pants and bare-foot. I figured he'd never even see a deer.
Well, he did. Then did this corney Elmer Fudd stalk for 175 yards (deer never moved...guess they didn't see him as a threat). He heaved that AK up against the tree and BAM! Down went the damned deer.
That's when I went "oh shit".
