Also, could you get your hands on any of the 250 OTM Hybrids? They will shoot the same as the EH's. I would love to see you shoot some more goats with the OTM's and compare. Especially at long distances. I have a theory I am working on and want real kills for data. What is your chambering?
This time I was using my .338 RUM at a launch speed of 2950 fps.
Seems like if I hit anything solid they went straight down. At other times they went straight through.
The ones I recovered that had through hits had only like 15mm holes through them. I videod a few kills and put them on you tube.
Here is a few. The first two are straight up kills and the last one is an example of a solid hit in the shoulder that didn't work. I recovered this goat after it died some 200m from the spot where it was hit.
Nothing wrong with the shot but Goats can be very tough for there size and are cull shoots are good practice.
