    a heavy one cause it will break throw the brush unlike a light one it will deflect off brush throwing your shot off

      I can't say for certain from my own experience as I have never resorted to a slow moving heavy round in the bush. Those who know better than me say that the heavy bullet has a better chance to bully its way to the intended target. That makes sense to me. I would imagine that approach comes by way of many guys learning the hard way that fast and light can fail you in the bush.
      The closer the point of deflection is to the target likely increases the chances of the bullet striking home. A 25-06 firing a 120 gr bullet might blow through a 4 inch branch with enough energy to put down the deer standing 5 feet behind that branch. However, I would agree that bigger is better in such a circumstance.

        the heavy round nosed will work the best, it's still best not to take the shot if you see brush. Too many deer end up wounded from ify brush shots.
