My friend, the late Norm Strung, had a Savage Model 99 in .358, which he used as a timber rifle for elk, and he shot the 250-grain bullets because they were built strong for heavy animals. One day, he shot a mule deer buck at 40 yards. The deer had its head down, feeding. The bullet hit the animal right in the ribs. The deer lifted its head at the sound of the shot, then went back to eating. Norm was like to swoon, and stood there with the smoking rifle in his hands, too dumbstruck to shoot again.
