What does he measure width wise around 24"?

What bullet?

The bullet manufacturer would probably appreciate pictures and your right up as well.

Did it enter the neck and finish in the chest?

Congrats again.

We didn't measure him but I'm guessing 24-25".

    My bet is, Nosler would appreciate the pictures including the bullet along with the story. That kind of stuff sells LOTS of bullets!

    Again, congrats on a great hunt.
    I'm with you on that one. I really have begun to use the nosler Accubond bullet in most of my rifles. It's an excellent bullet to shoot. I shot my mule deer last year at 500 yards with my 270wsm and it went through both shoulders. Dropped him in his tracks no tracking needed. That's all i needed to see and I've been loading AB ever since.
