Exit was large enough I could stick two fingers into it and the blood loss was pretty impressive.

Isn't it amazing how you either always seem to find bedded animals in that position or they lay down in front of you in that position!!!
Great shooting. The difficulty factor adds was very high on that shot. Its amazing easy it would SEEM to be for a shot like that and if your shooting at a 6" diameter rock at that range it would be easy for you guys but when you have that big rump staring you in the eye when your about to take the shot, it becomes a much trickier shot because of the mental aspect of it.
Well done, don't over think things, believe in your proven system and take a well prepped and released shot, congrats to all!!!
Looks like that OTM worked alright.
I believe every bullet design from time to time may have a hic-up here and there, its looking at a wide range of field results that we need to look at. Sometimes strange things happen with any bullet but that does not mean its a bad bullet or that it will perform badly, just that more testing and results need to be collected!!! What a crappy job we all have to do!!!
