Great pictures and glad to hear about the 300 SMK. What caliber rifle were you shooting?

    It happens with all of them from time to time, even with bonded.

    I had a no exit on a coyote a few years back with a mighty 200 grain Accubond out of a RUM. 50 yards running straight away texas heartshot. It made the whole critter quite soft and flexible......the taxidermist wasn't impressed, had to air his shop out for a day or two.

    Still performed, in a very terminal manner.
    Good shooting! Looks like it worked well.

    I had a 225 grain Hornady stay in a doe antelope this year from 150 yards. That was from a .338 WM. Broke near shoulder and far hip. Found the bottom half of the bullet right where the hide stuffed it back in the ham. Unbelievably, the doe got back up and ran 20 yards with half of her leg bones shattered. Her innards were so badly exploded that her stomach contents were coming out of the entrance wound under her shoulder. I just quartered her and took the backstraps. I left the cruchy jelly shoulder in the field. From now on I'll hold out for the broadside shot.


    Never thought I'd see the day where a .338 stayed in an antelope, but now I guess that makes two of us.

    My 300gr SMK didn't have any trouble on this goat. Broke 4 ribs 6" above the exit hole.
