We all strive to end our hunts with a clean, one-shot kill. And when it comes to hunting with a rifle, the bullet is what impacts the animal to create the desired outcome. But a bullet is much more than a chunk of lead or copper. There are many types of bullets, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. When it comes to big game hunting, how do you know what bullet to select? That is the topic of this episode’s discussion with our guest, Mason Payer of Nosler. Mason helps us understand the different types of bullets, the different performance characteristics of those bullets, and how to select the best bullet for the species we are hunting, the terrain we are hunting in, and the rifle we are hunting with.
