Hello interested shooters,
Drum rolls please...........
It seems as though a customer of Mr Dave Viers of Black Diamond Rifles using a 338 Snipe-Tac dispatched a 900 lb bull Elk in the Missouri Breaks of Montana using one of the Henson .338 265 grain Aluminum Tipped bullets (Gen 1 design as tested by GoodGrouper) with a reported starting velocity of 3455 fps using H50BMG powder. The shot was a little close at 424 yards and the bullet is reported to have penetrated the brisket at an angle and tore up the off-side shoulder.
Congratulations to the shooter/hunter.
