Thanks for the pictures.
I still use it off and on. I also took a mature bull moose at 650 with the same rifle/load. All bullets passed through and all had devastating effects.
The AB in the picture actually travelled a great distance into the ram. With the angle of the ram and the angle of the terrain, he was hit quatering away with his head down. It entered behind the shoulder, traveled the length of his neck and was halted by the back of his skull. Hence the reason I retrieved it.
All in all, I am very happy with the AB performance as a hunting bullet. It is a great balance between real hunting expansion/accuracy and decent BC.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
