All the meat was edible. Penetration was probably about 16 inches, he was a very fat buck with 1/2 inch of fat over his frontal area and over an inch on the hind quarters. Now if I can just do this well with my late season limited quota elk tag. I have to wait until Nov 1st though.
Thanks for that info. Good to know as I have never shot anything that close. This should be great info for many guys with 338 RUMs, 338 Lapuas and Edges that run around 2800 MV.

Good luck on that elk hunt!!
Jeff

My buddy's 2013 antelope. 1073 yards. 140 VLD hunting out of a 264 win mag. Its amazing what that bullet will do at 1000+. Huge exit.

Heck of a shot by your buddy!
Do you know the MV and impact velocity?

Re: Lets see your berger kills!

Muzzle velocity was in the high 3100's im not sure exactly. I don't know what the impact velocity was 1800-1900 I would guess. The thing still ran about 60-80 yards with no lungs but it was dead within 1 min of the shot. I got it all on video but with a crappy camera I need to do some editing and post it. No one wants to watch us range over and over and over again. Antelope never seem to stop walking.
