Yesterday I took a small bull with the 350 grs bullet.
The bullet entred at the last ribb and exited in front of the shoulder on the other side.
The shoot was taken at 110 -120 yards and the bull fell down at the place.
He tried to get up, but fell again.
He was ded when I got there.
This is the best bullet I ever fired from my rifle!
Still no camera, but a frien of my son has one, and he told me that i can borrow it.
I go hunt again on wednesday, so maby then!!!!!
;I got in contact with a man not far from my hometown through the Internet.
He recommended cast bullets.
I thougt why not. I´m always interested in trying new bullets and loads in my Marlin 444P.
He sent me a box of 50 350 gr cast bullets of your design.
November 19 I was out hunting moose as usual.
I live in a small village a few kilometres from Lycksele in the north of Sweden.
I had just let my dog loose when I heard him bark once.
About twenty seconds later I heard something coming through the forest towards me.
Suddenly two bulls? (male moose) came heading straight at me.
I shot the first one at about 30 meters and he fell to the ground as someone had cut of his legs.
The second one stopped about ten meters behind the first one so I shot him to.
Again it was like someone clubbed him to the ground.
The first moose was hit in the neck which might explain why he hit the ground so hard.
The second was hit behind the shoulders about 20-30 centimetres below the spine.
The bullet had penetrated the top of both lungs. I had to give him a final shot when he was lying.
I didn’t find any bullets. They went right through both animals.
I have never seen this result of a bullet before. Usually they always keep on moving a few meters or more. Not this time. They both fell to the ground at the same spot as where they were shot.
The wounds were very clean and we didn´t have to cut away any meat.
I can’t think of a better result and I don’t feel like using any other bullet anytime.
Earlier I have shot mooses with Remington, Hornady and Speer jacketed bullets, but not anymore.
Thank you and have a nice Christmas
