30 cal 215 Hybrid performance

First off, I lost all the pics I took of bullet entry. Three Elk taken, first one 163 yards, quartering towards. Bullet entry was front of right shoulder. Small 30 cal entry did not exit. Severe internal damage to lungs. Elk was DRT. watched it nose dive and slid 10 yards. never kicked.
second taken standing quartering away at 155 yards. Bullet entered fith rib from the back angling forward to off shoulder. 30 cal entry , did not exit. Severe internal damage to all organs. The off shoulder was purple due to pressure and frag. This Elk did the three second Berger wobble and went down. DRT
Third Elk was shot at 500 yards in his bed. I watched on video after the hunt and was amazed. The shot was a neck shot and appeared to be perfect at the time. While viewing the video I saw the bullet go thru a burnt 8" ponderosa pine. The pine was 30 yards in front of the Elk. After passing thru it stuck the Elk 2" below the jaw center of the neck. DRT never twitched. I will post some pics at another time.

    The first two sound just like all the ones we have taken with the 215 Hybrid. The 3rd one I would really love to see. Is there any way you could post that video??

    I appreciate your input on this bullet. I have made it my hunting bullet for my 300 win and welcome all the first hand field results I can get.

    Thanks!!

    Jeff

    I will see what I can do with the video. The broken fork horn is the Elk shot in the neck.
