    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!:Dgun)

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

    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

    How much drop is there at 400 yards?

    You know the test medium / gel blocks they use to shoot through?

    That's what her neck reminds me of when I look at this pic.

    nice photo! My area doesn't open until the 15th, but I will be in the Gross Vente hunting big mulies. Then off to fill 3 antelope tags with the 300 gr Bergers.

    Absolutely, they never expand. Just like shooting a FMJ. They don't shoot worth a crap & foul terribly also......:D - Just funnin of course.


    You guys suck, you know that? :cool: You'll be tagged out before my season even begins! Needless to say, i'm getting a little itchy!


    Well done Mike, I too am curious about the dope at 400 with your 375. That is just plain cool right there... talk about horsepower! Get that video done soon.
