Anybody out there shot any BIG critters with the Hornaday 190 BTSP?

Looking for experiance with the Hornaday 190 BTSP bullet in elk size critters and bigger. Terminal performance? Expansion? Penetration? weight retention ect....???

I shot several good groups and one stellar group at 300 yards tonite with these at good velocities. I think it may be a sweet spot and am wondering how they would hold up on elk and moose.

I have shot 1 deer with the Hornaday BTSP .243 100 and one sheep with a .308 165 Hornaday BTSP with good results but these are very small animals compared to elk/moose.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
