Zee had some MLD tags to get filled, so recognize this is a shooting and culling get together.
The meat that would come from these does, already had families to go to.
This was about fun, culling, meat for others, and a little bullet testing.
Neither one of us had used this bullet for hunting.
There were a number of MLD tags that needed to be filled, and I took care of three of them.
This XP is quite new for me, and it is also the first time that I have been able to draw blood with it.
The shot was short, at 140 yards from the prone position. Impact velocity was around 2,650 fps
It was a quartering shot and I hit her on the shoulder. Absolute destruction
It continued it travel through the some of vitals, through the stomach, and a small portion of the base of the bullet was just under the hide in the rear flank.
May use this for antelope next year.
As distance is further/impact speeds slower it should not open up quite as fast.
