Re: Want Pictures of Expanded Bullets

This one is a 140 Berger from a 270 WSM launched at 3300fps and taken from the far side of a cow elk at 325 yards. It went through the shoulder just missing the bone, through a rib then blew a hole through her heart you could put your hand through, messing up the lungs then breaking a rib and through the muscle on the of shoulder and catching under the hide. She was feel on her nose at the shot and didn't move. There is more bullet there than it looks, it curled up around the base of the bullet.

Re: Want Pictures of Expanded Bullets

Nice pics bigngreen. BTW i will probably shoot those CE bullets into newspapers next week. We are shooting this weekend so i will be able to figure out how much powder i need to use. I sent CE an email and they said the 252 grain D60 have a BC of .650 and have been replaced by the D59 i believe he said.

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.
Also should mention the bullet was shot from a 280Rem

My 280 - Updated!

Camera miraculously came back to life....

Re: Want Pictures of Expanded Bullets

This is a 300 grain SMK shot from a .338 Edge. I shot a Spike elk that was facing me from 900 yards. It went through the front of the chest and I found it under the hide of a rear quarter.
