    More deader, for sure. Extra deadness is too hard to use in a sentence. For example, "A 338WM kills deer more deader than a 30-06." Extra deadness just wouldn't work properly.:tooth:

    Neither.

    "Graveyard dead" is the proper term, preferably said Graaaveyaaard deeead! with a deep voice.
    Overkill is underrated.

    I would LOVE to see that response.

    In my world, "more deader" is the better grammatical slaying.

    There actually are 2 types of dead. Legal, or clinical dead, which means you are not technically alive, but are savable. That progresses into biological death which means the cells that make up your organs start to die. There is no fixing that.

    Which again, neither of those cover DRT (Dead Right There) or my favorite dead up (not my original words, but have used it more than once)

    B..B..But, you can say My 338mag kills with extra deadness and you will sound twice a studious. More deader is definitely redneckish sounding! Extra Deadness gives you an air of sophistication. And if you want you can say just simply Extra Dead or even Extra Deader. Maybe even Extra More Dead! Oh the possibilities are endless.

    It's a good thing I voted for more deader since I've been accused of being a bit of a redneck myself. Shooting a ground hog is ok, running one down with the John Deere in a 30 acre field and your a redneck for life....

    Down here, neither of those competes with "deader'n a doornail." You haven't *really* killed them 'til they're "deader'n a doornail." :jester:

    Dead is dead, no such thing as more deader or extra deadness.

    Well I didn't say .270 because I'm trying to be courteous tonight and get along and all. So I just typed .338, but It IS comforting to read .270 when I'm referring to my own shooting habits anyway. So thanks for fixin it for me Bro!

    I use DRT more than anything listed. I like DOT-never used it before. Thanks!

    I'm with Jayhawker on this one and since there wasn't a neither option, I didn't vote.
    The term that I'm must familiar with is as Jeeper said, " Deadern' a door nail".

    Hey, that's Rush Limbaughs favorite. The last time I heard him use it was whent there was a rumor going round that Castro might have expired and that's the way he phrazed it. That Castro may have assumed room temperature.

    The one phrase I see on this forum that bugs the piss out of me and makes me want to stomp a baby.........."Bang Flop". I don't know why, but I just find that phrase irksome. Go figure.
