Re: Not long range but I'll take it!

It's been available for a while now but hard to find for some reason. The advertised BC of .509 is overrated quite a bit. I use .488 G1 or .249 G7 in my Shooter app and its been good to 800 on paper. Not an ideal long range bullet but a great all around bullet. I was pretty impressed by the terminal results on that bull. It broke both front shoulders. I found the slug under the hide on the off side. It was a picture perfect bonded mushroom and weighed 82gr for nearly 60% retention.

Congrats and good shooting in the wind. That qualifies as a tough shot. Its nice when it works out with a truck like that also! Wow if only some of mine would have been that easy! thanks for sharing.
