    That's good to know, this thread would otherwise make you think 55gn don't work on deer!

    On a serious note ,can l also ask the Admin's ban any future posts by @Jhon showing his lay out of load testing notes .I spent 20 mins staring at my screen through the tear stains & my missus has had to make a booking with a therapist for me so l can try to regain my self worth after comparing my own smudged ,written upside down ,crossed out 3 times & at varying angle jottings from my own load testing notes.Put simply in the words of WE'RE N0T WORTHY .Seriously well done on showing us how it should be done

    Ha, thanks! I was too embarrassed to publish my handwritten rangebook page..its not a difficult template to create but if anyone wants it PM me, it's just a Word.docx file. The photos I take while my barrel cools. On my Android I found if I crop the photo immediately I take it, then edit details and change the default jpg file name to a detailed name such as "240gnHawkesT_AR220726gn-45m.jpg" then I forever have a labeled record of the group. And by the time I've walked back my barrel is back down to warm. Don't worry about deciphering my filename, just make up one that is meaningful to you. From my phone I share the photos to a Dropbox folder and from there I insert them into the word document. To publish them on the forum first off I took a photo of a printed page and uploaded that. Then I discovered a free windows 10 app to instantly convert a word file to a jpeg file. Voila!

    A tip when you relable a photo via its filename, do the first one for a group, then copy it. Your clipboard will hold that available so the next group you just select the default filename the app has used and hit PASTE. then edit what has changed, usually just the powder charge. Sounds tedious but becomes very quick. Once done I patch the target and therefore have no worries about confusing groups. FWIW.

    I only go to the trouble of making the record for range tests that are really meaningful to me. All the raw stuff I keep anyway in my range book so I'm not repeating stuff because I forgot it didn't work.

    Ha..been banging off a few of those Hornady 55grn soft nose jobs ? lately myself. They are capable of wasting some good meat on occasions.

    Hey? I'd say there has been one hell of a number of different deer types put down with 55grn'ers...but hey we know that eh? Smaller 50grn'ers have taken down a hellova number over many decades also ,fact.

    That was a feeble attempt at humour on my part, about all the talk on heavier pills here. I'll go make a cup of tea now.

    I stocked up on them a while back ready for the impending global shortage. A very old old old wise man from the king country said many a deer has been dropped with with traditional projectiles. The fandangle ones are just a luxury.
