Re: Moose Down 778m

Having read the other thread, I think you're probably right. These weren't mag fed, so the tips should have been good.

Re: Moose Down 778m

It could have been a blocked or fouled tip, but I also think there is a good chance that velocity was too low, especially being the target bullets.

The moose was standing broadside. This bullet entered between two ribs with a caliber size hole, went directly through the heart and hit a rib on the far side. It then traveled 2 to 3 in laterally along the rib before lodging in flesh.
These pics look like the photos Forum member 'elkaholic' has posted of Berger bullets that he's tested at similar impact velocity in water and other bullet expansion testing media.

Re: Moose Down 778m

Good job. Would probably have been a 1 shot and down but for
bullet issues. The things to tune up next time are all quantifiable
variables.
