Video was fun BUT - not fair ---he only loaded 30 grains powder for all three ? - a fair test woulda been load em all to capacity - so you get five or six more grains powder under a round ball than the conicals will take - better velocity would cancel out some of the conical ""advantage""

Strange the OP hasn't chimed back in with all the comments for his dilemma that he requested advice on. Like has been posted, if game laws prevent carrying, mote point. If you down a deer with any chunk of lead that doesn't kill it by the time you walk up to it, you have time to stuff another ball/bullet down the tube and administer a kill shot. Why strap on a leg iron (weighing 3-4.5 lbs) and carry it all day when the long pole you carry in your hands is all that's needed. If anybody is thinking a 2nd or 3rd kill shot on a running deer in brush or extended yardage with some horse pistol--good luck, besides the game warden may give ya a summons if against your state regs if ya get caught.
