Re: Finally, a recovered Barnes bullet!
C'mon, sewwhat89, you're killing me! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] That is awesome! Now I really can't wait till Monday!
Adam, I agree with ol' wapiti13. From the looks of the frontal pictures of your bullets, they look as if they were well down range from your rifle when they hit. Only the small diameter one has that melted copper look where the meplat used to be. The others look as though they were travelling quite slow when they impacted. What kind of animals were they recovered from?

The 140g XFB out of my 270 WBY crushed both front shoulders and exited, leaving a bright red triangle design in the snow. From the air it would have looked like an arrow pointing to the dead bull on the ground. He never stepped out of his tracks after being hit and the "thwack" of impact in that snowy, calm meadow was incredible!
