Since there seems to be a lot of my bullet vs your bullet going on lately I though it would be fun to see what you think based on a picture of the animal during cutting. We kill game with a wide variety of stuff so it's interesting to see what happens :D
First batter up is a tasty morsel of the whitetail variety. I'll get the next pic a little bigger but the entire side of it is jello and blood shot!!

Back in the day I've duplicated that pic many times until I learned to back off at least 250 yards.:D

270 Win/130 Sierra spbt/58.5 gr RL-22/3190 FPS.

I suppose other bullets do the same thing but I have the copyright on this one.:D

150VLD is my guess;

But I secretly hope it was something smaller like a .243 or .257 pill, less than 120 grains. I always like to see the surprise on someone's face when they are reminded that smaller bores are still very effective.

I'll figure out the impact velocity and energy this morning then post what hit it but so far no one is close!

50 grain V-max

We'll guess low, then high bracketing the actual then narrow it down.

Should become the longest thread on the forum.:D
