Is that the hit? Expected a little more turmoil than that. Nice shot!

Re: First long range ground Hog

Yes that is the entrance wound. I was kind of disappointed with the expansion of the bullet myself. The bullet pretty much penciled through. The bullet entered the neck and exited behind the opposite shoulder. I was using Nosler 175gr custom comp's at 3100 fps muzzle. At that distance it was traveling at around 1700 fps and had around 1222 ft-lbs. My only guess is that it didn't hit anything solid enough to expand.

Not surprising the bullet penciled through. A custom comp bullet is not an expanding bullet.

Nice shot. Your shot is 29 yards longer than my record.
