I'm new to shooting the 300 grain SMK's. I'm shooting a .338RUM at about 2690 with these guys. I've shot 2 animals, one a moose at 50 yards and a bear at 535 yards.
Both animals dropped on the spot, which is great. On the moose I found a few shards of copper near the entrance wound. On the bear I found the outer jacket or shell from the SMK.
The center is gone and this was found somewhere in the bears chest. Is this typical for the SMK? I'm just curious not complaining. Both kills put the animal down in his tracks. That's all I'm looking for.
On the bear and the moose there wasn't a large exit hole at all. I was expecting something larger but I figure the moose was too close and the bullet just traveled in and out. On the bear the exit hole was pretty small.
Any info would be great. Thanks
