What's left of a 240 grain XTP

Description: Recovered this from the buck I killed on opening day. He was quartering hard to me at 35 yards. Shot him at junction of neck and left shoulder and he went straight down. Found the jacket under the off side hide just past the liver. It shed the core but it jellied his lungs.

Yep, they are consistent. If I was fortunate enough to hunt a bigger heavier critter I would go with cast or A-frames.

That's exactly what my bullets have looked like out of the Super Redhawk with the 300 gr XTP. I talked to the tech guy at Hornady who told me that structure of the bullet is compromised with any load over 19 gr of H110, I was pushing them with 23 gr of 296
