Re: Girlfriends first elk

I am using Berger 215 hybrids, at 3050 fps. Bullet performance was great, I filled my antlerless deer tag and my mother took a spike bull with the same gun in the two weeks before this bull, none of them moved. All rounds passed through, I will say that it leaves a 30 cal hole upon entry and looks more like a 12 gauge on exit. Doesnt seem to care if you hit soft tissue or bone. I think it is because the are hollow point and it looks as though the tip explodes and the rest of the bullet travels through. On the doe i shot it hit rib and parts of the shattered rib bone exited the other side. After seeing two elk and a deer taken with the round I couldn't be happier with the performance.
