Just over 400 yards 115gr 25-06 This is my only Berger kill so far. I am coverting from the Barnes Band wagon. The one picture is of the exit hole. Since I liked it so much I will steal the saying this nasty critter "folded up like a fat man in a cheap lawn chair".
Nice YoTe you got there Rooster... it looks kinda beeg
You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you make good use of it.

Thanks Jeff, looks like my turn to keep the taxidermist in business this year. Bullet did a great job of breaking the shoulder blade, destroying the internals and coming to rest on the outside of the far shoulder(no bone on off side) the real nice thing was there was almost zero blood shot! 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.
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.
