Hey all, Killed my first animal after switching to the 175 gr ELD-X, small mule deer buck at 600 yards. Impact Energy: Approx. 2300 ft/lbs Impact Velocity: Approx. 2400 fps Although this was a heart/lung shot, the deer dropped immediately after being hit, exactly like animals I have previously killed with a high-shoulder/spine shots. He just folded up. 30 minutes later when I made my way to him he was still laying with his legs folded under him, no evidence of thrashing. Pics show the entrance and exit, fairly dramatic. I'm very impressed to say the least. Elk will hopefully follow in a few weeks. *Note: front shoulders have obviously been removed already in pictures, left side is entrance, right side is exit.
