Re: Why isn\'t this bullet?
I shot a small elk at 100 yards with a 7mm 150gr scirocco. The elk was laying down, one shot through the lungs and it stood up then tipped over. When inspecting the carcas it was hard to determine what exactly happened. The only way I can make sense of it is that just the way she was laying the bullet grazed the shoulder ripping a massive hole in the input side then went into the cest cavity and had split into two separate peices because there was a small exit hole (about .5 inch) by the last rib, and a larger exit hole (about 1 inch) just behind the opposite shoulder. With signs of small fragments between the two exit holes. I have never shot any aminals laying down at strange angles like that before so I can't say how it compares to other bullets, but hey, meat is in the freezer!
