Re: 240 Sierra Match King
Just a bit more 240 SMK info to add. I shot a spike bull this year at 70-80 yards. I was on the edge of a cliff probably 40-50 feet higher and he was almost facing me when he stopped for a second. A quick shot in the trees, so had to take what I had. Bullet took out the near shoulder, breaking the scapula part that encapsulates shoulder ball then traveled on down to the chest breaking 3 ribs as it entered the chest cavity and made a mess of the chest. I didn't recover the bullet and was so busy dressing him to try to beat the oncoming darkness, I didn't look for it. I didn't notice any evidence that it exited and I didn't paw through the chest remains for it. I figure it hit him doing about 2900fps. He went about 20 feet and fell over. Surprised he got that far actually. Hope this helps.

Reason: almost facing me, not quartering away...
