I killed a spike elk Saturday morning from 900 yards with my .338 Edge. It was across the canyon coming toward me and I shot it in the chest. It stopped and turned broadside so I put another one behind the shoulder and it dropped like a rock. While quartering it I found the first bullet sitting under the hide on the rear quarter. It passed through the length of the elk. Bullet really did not expand as I would have expected it to. Picture is below.
The broadside shot hit a rib going in and did not exit. Below is the pic of the entrance wound.
