I shot a Red Deer spiker at 49 yards with my Edge, 1-9twist, 300 SMK at 2830fps.
It was the first deer I shot with it, so much for my LR rig
The deer was facing me quartering, it hit high on the shoulder & took out 6-8 inchs of back bone, needless to say he went right down
The retrieved bullet weighed 125 grains & was intact for approx 1/4" from the base.
I was very impressed that it didn't completely blow up, if I had had my 338 Improved it may have been a different story but the end result would have been the same
You gotta love electronic earmuffs, no time for ear protection in this case, just as well I had them on
