    Long range kill damage

    Since there seems to be people here who hunt at long range so can you show me some pics of the damage to animals at certain ranges please, Im keen to see what differences there are between say 50-1000m with one of those big calibers.

    300 yards, 6.5x55, 140 grn AMax. Not "one of those big calibers" though. The hole is the exit.

    Broadside, straight across gully. MV 2800 fps.

    40 yards with 243 and 95 grn Targex. Yearling Fallow. Ouch!

    Angled running away, low shoulder shot, no exit.

    A good example why we have to be damned careful about where we point firearms and what we are actually shooting at, eh. No second chances.

    If people could post impact velocity, shot angle, calibre and bullet type alongside the autopsy then there could be potential for some useful information, start tosee the real world terminal performance patterns over different velocity ranges. Would require quite a few posts to be definitive but could develop a good base over time

    6.5x55 was using winchester super x 140gr and .270 was with highland not sure cause it wasnt my gun just saw him hand me bullets from a highland box but assume 130gr as thats what he says he likes for deer.

    Just remember you cant lump bullets/weights performance together. Impact velocity is the thing not range, differnt cals and cartridges Can push a pill to a wide velocity range.

    30 cal amax 168gr impact vel 2180 fps
    Behind shoulder meat no bone between ribs.




    Both lungs anihalated run 50 odd yards due to taking out top of heart as well.

    .375 400 Cutting Edge muxxle velocity of 2920 775 yards

    Red Hind





    Stag that was on the ute behind the pic of the Hind.





    Looking forward to seeing what another 200-250 fps muzzle velocity will make

    That depends entirely on the pill and impact velocity, even thick skin eg roaring stag or matted coat full of mud can cause "Issues" with a very frangible pill at high impact velocity's(IE close) without hitting bone at all.
    A "harder/Tougher" pill out of a smallish case and med ranges may "require" hitting bone or at least substantial resistance(thick skin/hair and a heap of shoulder meat) to even expand.

    Holy fuck. That is wow. I want that lol the ole man will cry about meat wastage but it just means hunting more. Do you think ballistic tip projectiles work better then soft points of lead? for say around 80m in 6.5? Thats probably common range for deer with me I havnet shot many deer though but I buy Winchester super x's 140gr with the leap tips and they seem ok but some people told me they are shit and to use Ballistic tip projectiles and other's say keep using them cause there better, I dont trust any of them as they dont know shit, just old guys talking rubbish, I trust you guys to know what your doing.
