Updated with first field report.  Unfortunately....my daughter did not get her first bear with it.  Her and my wife had to leave early due to my wife having to go back to work.  Me and my son stayed for an extra day and a half though.  I ask my daughter if we could use her rifle and she generously obliged.  Needless to say, in the last hour of our hunt, my son was able to connect on a bear and the bullet did exactly what it was suppose to. 

Approx 30-40 yards broadside.
153 lb bear
Entrance wound is first picture breaking one rib
Exit wound is second picture...hole doubled in size and you can see 4 small exit wounds from the pedals. 
The heat and lungs were 100% jellyfied.....and the heat looked like someone had taken a lawn mower to it with all the slices / cuts in it. 
Bear went 15 yards and was dead in less than 10 seconds.....pretty sure it was a dead bear running. 

As for the bullets performance, I would say it works at the upper velocity ranges.  It will be nice to see how it does at range.  My daughter still has a bear to get and hopefully her first deer to this year.  I will continue to report, assuming we stay lucky and this rifle gets a workout on game this year.
