Got a critter down with the .338 250 SBDII

Pronghorn doe at 595 yards, impact of 2338 fps. Entered between the humorous and scapula, missed any ribs. On exit it went the same place, missing the humorous and scapula, but centered up with a rib. Pictures explain the rest!

Entrance hair on

Internal - right side of pic entrance, left exit. Note how the entrance side lung is damaged, but woukd still hold together in one piece when picked up, the exit side was jelly, and would fall apart in your hand. This tells me that was how far it took to really do heavy damage, which is about 3ish inches.

After the hit, she stumbled about 15ish yards and piled up, dead in like 10 seconds, pretty quick.
Looks great! Thanks for sharing!

Good stuff!

The pig i shot with the .257 110gr had similar performance after hitting some bone.

I shot a deer through the ribs and it was not as “explosive”. Didn’t get any good pics unfortunately. I am aiming for the shoulder with these bullets, personally. Same as other monos.

I am pretty happy with this, on a doe pronghorn there is only about 10" max width, with only 4"-5" of that being inside the vitals, so to have expansion with so little resistance is a good sign I my mind. I think the larger .338 bullets may expand easier, as they have a larger frontal area? Just a guess?

I just tried to order 6 boxes of Bulldozers to try them out in different calibers but was quoted shipping fees of $60 for Priority Mail and $51.54 for ground shipping. I know that USPS has raised their prices but this is pretty crazy. Has anyone else run into this?

Interestingly, if I have two boxes in my cart, the Priority Mail fee is $20; if I have three boxes in the cart, the shipping fee is $30. So it looks like they're charging $10/box to ship. I sent them an email about this.

They will refund whatever isn’t spent on shipping.

🤷 If the .338 275 grain SBDII can drop a moose with a through and through and 950 yards, I’m pretty much sold on the effectiveness of the bullets.

The exit wound wasn’t huge at 950, but the internal damage was pretty darn significant. I should have taken more pictures of the internal damage.

The bullet hit bone on the way out and still exited.

Has anybody tried out the 150gr bulldozer-2's on game? Ideally from a 308 Win? Any experience with load development? I see some gel tests from @Trigger24 a few pages back which look promising.
