Thanks guys!

I forgot to mention, the load I used in the 327 was 13.1 grains of H110 under the 100 grain XTP. This averaged 1,794 fps out of the 12" barrel, and was about 1" accurate at 100 yards. The bullet seemed to have expanded rapidly initially, but the hole in the offside hide wasn't very large. Really wish I could have recovered it to see how well it held together.

The 100XTP is surprisingly tough. IME with it in the .32 H&R Magnum at 1250 fps MV it expands but still penetrates well. The mushroom isn?t huge but it works.

Well done! A very good report and pleased to see the autopsy.

Congrats on both kills. I don?t discriminate firearm platform. I like them all. 😁
