The Box O’ Truth has tested various cartridges to see what penetrates brush the best. As I hunter I found this is a *very* interesting read as it has been something I have wondered about many times.
Sometimes a deer will be behind a brush and only allow a narrow area for a hunter to place a bullet through. Even then, that bullet may hit a branch. Some old deer hunters used to say, “Those high velocity spitzers will be deflected by branches, but not my old .45-70. It’s a brush-buster!”
