Re: Are Elk easy to kill?

Sorry guys I never know it was a Lotto program for an Elk tag in South Dakota.

But it's still a great State.

    FYI, the Interlock bullet from Hornady has stories out there more similar to what you describe; are you sure it was the InterBond? Just asking, that's all.
    No mistake, 85 grain INTERBOND. Maybe the speed was just too fast for the bullet. The swift sciracco's perform better in that caliber. I am not saying that all interbonds blow up, just this particular one in .243.
