I have been using 180gr Core Lokts and they do a good job on Blacktail. However, every time I go to Kodiak I see bear and sometimes they are fairly close. My question is, would Barnes X be the better choice for hunting deer on Kodiak keeping in mind the potential for bear problems? I have no interest in shooting a bear but if the need arises I want to feel comfortable knowing that the bullet will do what it needs to do. The reason I hesitate with the Barnes X is that I'm a little concerned about how the bullet will perform against deer. Will it expand adequately or just put a pencil hole through the animal? I'd appreciate some input.
