338 Berger Expansion and Penetration test on 925 yd. Antelope

Went out today to try to fill my antelope tag. Found a nice buck and decided to take him, but he kept walking and had to wait for about 10 min. before he stopped. Nick ranged him at 925 yds. and I started clickin'. Nick gave me the go ahead and I squeezed the trigger and sent the bullet. Nick could see the bullet through the spotting scope and knew it was a good shot before the bullet even got there. He was quartering away a bit and I hit him back just a little. After the Berger hit, he turned towards us and walked maybe 25 yds and fell over.
