re: Long Range thick skin bullets
I just harvested a big muley with 300 gr otms @2830, deer was only 80 yards and never moved at the shot. Bullet did not exit, entered behind the shoulder and there is a bullet diameter hole in the off shoulder, but I haven't cut the meat up yet to see if a fragment is in there. The damage in the chest cavity was devastating. It looked like a hand grenade went off. I had same results last year with a big bodied bull elk at 550 yards, drt. I don't know that it would be good for a bone breaking shoulder shot, but behind the shoulder it is devastating. I do seem to prefer the heavier for caliber bullets with berger though. Accubonds or Swift A frames would be my choice for a bullet to penetrate with a follow up by barnes tipped triple shock.
