2010 spike bull

This wasnt a long shot, just 278 yds, but you take what is offered. I was using my 375 tejas, impact velocity at about 2800 fps, 260 accubond. No meat damage and the entrance side rib cage had a 5" diameter hole blown thru it. The exit side shoulder blade had a mushroomed size hole with the bullet stopping against the hide. I have never seen an animal hit the ground so fast, not so much as quiver after the shot. Very impressed with the bullets performance.

Always hered field artillary called for a forward observer.... lucky for you your daughter is tough enough to lugg that cannon around as a gun barrer, when her forward observing skills are not called upon
Good lookin rig, congrats on the bull, and congrats on raising a daughter that hunts with her dad. Very cool. We need more posts/threads like this. Thanks for getting your kids involved. Hats off to ya. Neat pics too by the way

Re: 2010 spike bull

No wonder he died, got his lights turned out by a flying anvil, that's taking a big hit to to stop it under the hide!

375 rum improved (tejas) case blown out and pushed forward. My load is 108 gns of rl 19, 260 accubond at 3378 fps from a 31" brux barrel. My daughter killed an elk last year with this rifle at a long for the family shot of 800 yds.
