"So you did not recover the bear? How do you know where the bullet hit it? How do you know that you did not hit a twig or something before it hit the bear? Quite frankly, this is the first time I have heard of a Scirrocco failing to perform terminally. I have herd, and experienced rifles not liking them, but never failure. I suppose anything is possible."
No I did not recover the bear. The shot was spotted by 2 others looking through binos and a spotting scope. Clear bullet path between me and the bear as he was out on the tidal flats turning rocks looking for crabs. I have since killed 3 more bears with the Nosler and all have died within 2 steps if not instantly.
In my veiw if I do my part the bullet should do it's part.
The Nosler hasn't failed me. The Scirroco has failed me. Simple like that.
