    This is from a couple weeks ago. 30 cal. 200 gr. ELD-X recovered in the offside shoulder of a large cow elk. Only about 40 yd. shot entering through a rib so impact velocity was over 2800 fps. I've read on Hornady's site that this can happen in extreme cases where the bullet expands past the threshold of the integral interlock ring.

    Let's see your mushroom!

    I?ve never recovered a rifle bullet, but I have a few muzzleloader bullets. This was from a whitetail doe this year. Hornady XTP 250 gr. Facing right at me, shot in the chest and recovered in the hindquarter.
