Henson Aluminum Tipped Bullet Meat test #3

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.

Trophy photos (no wound channel or exit wound pictures) taken by the guide are available from the bulletsmith at:

    Nice bull. The area looks familiar. Any Idea what that bull scored?
