Want Pictures of Expanded Bullets

Looking for pics of expanded bullets that have been recovered in either game or a testing media such as newspapers, water jugs, etc...

Please tell, starting bullet weight, recovered weight, caliber, cartridge fired from, approx impact velocity, what it was recovered from, design (vld, TTSX, A-Max, Partition, etc...), if recovered from game how performance was and what it encountered (shoulder bone, rib, etc...).

Not looking to debate what bullet is better just want to see some pics.

How bullets perform and do their job has alwaysed intrigued me.

Have a great weekend!

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Duuuuuude! my camera just died and I have one bullet on my reloading bench that is the only one I've ever recovered. It is awesome! It started life as a 150grain Remington Corelokt. I shot a 180lbs whitetail buck at 50 yards with it. The deer was quartering towards me. The shot just missed inside the front right shoulder. It passed all the way threw the deer and was recovered in the left hind quarter. The bullet is a perfect mushroom and weighs 96.7grains. Deer managed to go a few hundred yards.

    Here's a 140 Accubond from my 270 WSM I dug out of the ground after it went through a mule deer buck at 300 some yards, took out on side lung then dorsal aorta then second lung. A blind man could have tracked him, he sprung a little leak
