For reasons already listed in this thread, photos will not be posted. There are way too many variables and since all photos can/could be altered, they provide no more proof than without photos. Heck, unless you have a crowd of witnesses, it is hard to prove that the wound channel in any photo is from a specific bullet or cartridge. Unfortunately, I don't take witnesses hunting with me. We can see no reason why someone would believe a photo over a written report given that photos can/could be altered.
So, if you must have a photo we cannot help you in that area. But neither does any other bullet company other than GS Custom Bullets. The first bullets one fires of a specific type are always based on faith in the construction and materials (machined aluminum tips from a CNC controlled cutter, same jackets offer by Wildcat bullets, and Pb from the earth) used as well as the quality control processes that capture inferior specimens.
Specifically, the uncertainty of photos is why I rate the exit and the overall wound channels based on other bullets I have used and others have used. They can correlate their own experiences, results and picture what I am talking about. I can tell you that the 180s do not seem to be as explosive as the Sierras. I will be testing the 265s in the next 10 days and hopefully will be able to directly compare them to the 300 SMK (that I have taken numerous heads with).
RG Henson has a satisfaction guarantee so if you are not satisfied, you can return them. Do you know of any other large or custom bullet company offers the same customer service program? However, as strange as it may seem there is one customer out there who would rather, moan, groan, complain (but did not follow the printed directions or the posted directions/recommendations on the internet where they were being discussed) than to return the bullets and get his money back. It makes one wonder the ages and maturity levels of some of the people who post on this and other websites.
That just goes to show you that even when you offer money back guarantees that you cannot please some people....... When one spends 50K-60K worth of equipment and consumables to start a project, returning less than $200 is not an issue.
Remember, contrary to popular belief, these are not "jam into the lands" type bullets as they have a fairly healthy bearing surface that must be considered when tuning loads. The best perfomance will be achieved .030 to .070 off the point of land engagement.
