Shawn,

Good job! Congratulations on a nice bull and some excellent shooting. What kind of expansion did you get with those "soft" hits.

    what kinda bullet are you shooting out that. Just for question, did you go to school in Orofino?

    Expansion was really good on the 2nd hit but the exit hole was plugged and did not leave much of a trail. The first hit was small I believe that the bullet broke into 2 similar size pieces and one exited the off side and the other stayed in the body cavity. I was happy with the bullet performance.

    Screech,

    I was using a 300 SMK @ 2850 fps. I did grow up in Orofino and went to school there. What makes you ask?

    Congrats Shawn!

    Were both bullets pass throughs?

    I'll bet the rest of the days plans for shop work ended with those two shots! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Yes, both passed through and I was happy to just get home before dark.
