I actually put 3 shots on that bull, the 1st thru his lungs from the right & a passthru, the 2nd straight into the brisket and out by his last rib, and the last one pictured. All were DOA shots, but since he will still standing, I was still shooting. My last two bulls were shot with the same set-up, and were about 60 yards. The bullets mushroomed as much, but with some petal breakoff and were found on the far side hide.
    I hit my bull this year twice, first was fatal, just a little high so it was going to take a few for his lungs to fill. So I hit him again and droppe d him in his tracks.

    I shot this buck antelope at 795 yards with the 143 gr ELD-X bullet in my 6.5 Creedmoor rifle. The bullet went through a rib on the right side, took out the top of both lungs and exited through a rib on the left side. When I walked up to him I was shocked at the exit wound. I have shot many antelope over my 74 years using my .243; my longest range has been 750 yards and the handload I was using dropped them but I have never seen a bullet perform like the ELD-X and it was pushing a 20mph wind. And I like people to know I am a lady that has been doing long range shooting for many years.

    It isn't much. .25-06 100 grain Barnes TTSX at 3200fps. 420 yard shot.

    It really didn't look like much until we pulled the hide off of him. One shot kill.

    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost....
