Reviews and comments written for the Nosler CT Fail Safe bullet.
I have been shooting a 165 grain Fail Safe and found that it has done very well on large mule deer. In 2003, I bagged a large buck at 200 yards on a rear facing quartering shot with my 300 Win Mag. I placed the bullet at the last couple of ribs on the right side of the animal and the bullet did it's job, just as advertised. The bullet hit a rib when it first went in went through the left lung and liquefied it went through the top of the heart and blew apart the other lung and then went on and shattered the front shoulder joint. It wasn't just shattered, it was pulverized. The buck turned to jump and fell over dead. Nothing beats a one shot, one kill. I found the bullet later after I was butchering it in the bone sand that had once been the front shoulder joint. This last year I bagged another buck with a similar shot. I am really pleased at the way the animals went down, quick and clean. Nothing is worse than having to try and find a wounded animal.

The 270 grain fail safe in .375 H&H Magnum is too hard a bullet for wild Camels and Donkeys here in the north of Australia, it will punch thru and flatten the animal behind if you are not careful. But on Asiatic Water Buffalo it is THE ONE to use, and easily sorts out the feral pigs [ hogs ]. Cheers.
