Thanks for sharing.

Would you guys be hesitant to take a shoulder shot on elk at closer ranges( less than 400 yards) with this bullet out of a .300 Win. Mag/.300 RUM?

I personally would not want to take a direct shoulder shot inside 500 yards. The bullet may work fine in this situation and Broz with his impressive resume using these bullets can give you a better opinion. I just saw how quick it expanded at 500 yards after hitting three small rib bones. I also would not want to waste a whole shoulder as I need all of the meat I can get with the way my family eats

Re: Berger 215 Hybrid Performance on Elk

The kids, wife and I cut up Mr. Bully tonight. I did find three pieces of what would be the ogive and very tip portion of the bullet. The pieces were lodged in the inside of the onside shoulder just ahead of bullet entry. It appeared that as the bullet entered and hit the three ribs the tip broke off and deflected away from the ribs and steered towards the inside of the shoulder. In any case, the rest of the bullet went in the right direction and caused utter devistation.
