Wont be wasting your money at ALL.. Just make sure you get the proper grain for the animal you are going after...The interbond is a heck of a good bullet...Holds its weight well and flies good...Now wether your rifle will like it or not is another story...Some rifles are picky critters and wont shoot some bullets worth a damn...But as far as well made, they are hard to beat
You could do the interbond on deer but you would gain little. If a cup and core bullet of proper weight will go in one side and out the other, you gain nothing by shooting an expensive premium in one side and out the other. While there are instences of bullets failing on deer, if you use the right bullet, it's a rareity. I'd look at 165gr loading with Hornady, Speer or Remington bullet's. Bear in mind I said 165gr. There are no 165gr match bullets I aware of but there are 168gr match bullet's. You don't want match ammo for hunting.
If premium bullet's are what you want, reloading is the way to go. That way you have options on how the bullet's are loaded to best suit your rifle.
a deer is a fairly fragile animal that unless your going to use the Texas heart shot, don't require a lot of penetration.
I use the 130gr Interbonds in my 270wsm for long range rabbits etc..... Very accurate and dependable. Would be an excellent big game bullet. The rifle isn't set up for big game. So I don't use it for that purpose. Although I probably could if the conditions were right.
Winter is tough on whitetails, that is an accepted fact.
You can help the quality of your herd by providing winter plots - that are not necessarily designed as kill plots.
Having what I call green plots - that the deer can browse in when most of the other food is gone, can greatly benefit the deer herd when they need it most.
Come December - at least in our area of the south - most of the mast is gone, all of the crops were long harvested and this green browse can really make the difference for...
