I went to pick up some ammo to go white tail hunting. I usually use Winchester 180 gr CXP2 in my Remington 710 30-06. I have had good success with this round in the past. Dick's Sporting Goods did not have any in stock. CXP2 is to be shot at thin skinned, medium sized game like white tail an black bear.
So I picked up some Federal Vital-Shok 180 gr. When I got home I realized that the box that I got was for thick skinned large game like elk and brown bear.
If I use the Federal on white tail do I risk the round not expanding rapidly enough and possibly let the animal run way too far before dropping?
I'll be sighting in this weekend. So I need to either get some of the old reliable or stick with what I have.
