Awesome. Glad to see the list still growing. Hopefully there is another uptick in successful posts as rifle seasons start to open for deer  and elk

West side bear (Unit 460) about 2 weeks ago.  Never used the all-copper rounds before, but I'm sold.  Perfect expansion and weight retention.  This bear literally dropped in his tracks--didn't take singe step.  About 270 yards, quartering away.  One of these rounds broke ribs, vaporized lungs, and broke the scapula on the far side.  Second broke ribs, lungs, and broke the upper arm bone on the far side.

What kind of bullet?  Im shooting the hornady gmx in my .308 because i get crazy tight groups, but ive yet to test it on an animal.  Hoping to put one in an elk this year if im fortunate enough to get the chance.

My bear was the first animal I've killed with a copper bullet. Barnes TTSX, 120 GR 7MM. Hit the bear in the neck just in front of the shoulder connection. From what I can gather the bullet actually split and left 2 normal size exit holes. Lots of  bloodshot meat. Dead bear.

I used the Barnes 7mm Remington Magnum   160 Grain TSX BT.  There was shot damaged meat on the far side shoulder (after it went through ribs and lungs), but that was to be expected (at least in my humble opinion) from a quartering away shot.  But no lead in the meat...I'll take it.

First bear down. Hit him and he barrel rolled down the rocks. First time using sgks and it performed well. Only took 1 shot, clean pass through.

Looks like he's exploring a new break dancing move there. Great job getting one on a scale, almost never see that!
