Handloaded 185g barnes tsx bullet at about 30 yards. It went in just behind the front shoulder and we recovered it under the hide on the opposite rear quarter. This was my first critter with these bullets and I can say I am impressed. DSCN0562.jpgDSCN0563.jpgThat bear ended up with ALL of the bullets energy. Its was .338wm with 75g of 4831 and CCI 250 mag primer.
Looks like more fun than fireworks. Good looking bear. Congratulations.
Congrats on a fine bear, couldn't of been a better day to get one as well!
