375 Ultra vs. Antelope

Last might me a.d Tom (elkoholic307) decided to run out before dark and try to film a kill. We found some goats so i ranged them at just over 400 and sent a 270 gr Barnes TSX her way. The tsx did fantastic as always. Dropped her in her tracks.
Tom got the whole thing on film but.you have to wait to see that.

    Nice! what unit where you hunting? Thats a pretty long shot for a flat based wide meplat bullet. But then again you are shooting from a 375 RUM!

    EDIT: frogot to add we have that same lawn mower.

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

    I heard Barnes bullets just pencil through if they don't hit bone. Is this not the case?

    I believe it is NOT the case haha. I have seen a lot of animals fall to the tsx. I have never seen one get away. Only bullets i have seen get away after being shot were with core lokt and bergers

    Are you sure you didnt load it with a 270 grain Barnes WTF by accident?
    How much drop is there at 400 yards?
