A caliber hole though bone doesn't indicate non-expansion, I have seen the same thing on Moose with a 250 grain Partition shot under 100 yards and the recovered bullet was mushroomed nicely. Only a recovered bullet will reveal the truth
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

JWP I don't understand that, how could you punch a .338 caliber hole through bone with say a .375 caliber expanded bullet?
