Yes I too enjoy reading your posts Juan. Stick to writing the way you are. It is great to hear about your country and the style of hunting you do. I have plans to get there one day.... won't be for a while... but I will get there!

Beautiful countryside Juan, and I'll bet the hunting is superb. Wouldn't that be just a perfect shot on that 14 point Red Stag.

Juan, your a gentleman, and your a perfect fit at our campsite.

Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

Speer is a quality bullet. While I don't use them much for hunting purposes, Speer Gold Dots are are one of the most commonly carried bullets by law enforcement. There is a reason for that - performance. I carry them every day and trust them 100%. There are so many decent hunting bullets out there these days it's not hard to find a good brand and bullet. Bullet technology sure has come a long way since I was young. The old Core-Lokt bullets were pretty good in their day and still not actually bad, even by today's standards.

I like Speer's hunting bullets but not the Gold Dots.  I had to carry them until I was put in charge of the firearms department of the department I work for and that was the first thing I changed.  I'm not a fan of the Gold Dots and after seeing the results of the ballistic tests we conducted with them and the Winchester Ranger T-Series we went with the Ranger T-Series ten years ago and never looked back.  I've had to put down lots of deer that have been hit by cars and always shoot the deer in the head with them and they take a while to die with the Gold Dots compared to the ones I've shot with the Ranger T-Series which are near instant kills.  To each their own but when it comes to personal protection and work I'll take the Ranger T-Series every time. 
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

Juan, those are some beautiful pictures! Your country is a stunning place, my friend. I've always wanted to visit Argentina and Chile, and hope to one day do so.

Beautiful country for sure. I would like to try out some Ranger T-series, although I do stand by the Gold Dots (not the G2 Gold Dots, which suck, especially out of short barrels). Here's one a a zillion articles: http://gunblast.com/RKCampbell-GoldDot.htm

Juan, beautiful country, and one of the countries in my bucket list to hunt.  Now more than ever, I have two reasons to visit Argentina, one to hunt, and two, my wife's niece lives in Buenos Aires and my wife wants to visit. 

BTW Juan, thank you for the wonderful things your country is doing with the Venezuelan refugees.  Your country opened the doors to my wife's niece, and in less than two months she had a work permit, and she now has a temporary residency.  Again, thank you!!!!!  Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the post.

I use the long discontinued Speer .338 275gr. Semi-Spitzer in my Mark V Stainless 340 Weatherby Magnum.  I still find them for sale from time to time at gun shows.
