Yes - THROUGH the bulges low on the shoulders when it is 90 degrees on. If more hunters did that way, way less elk will be lost.Kudu, I have tried most of Barnes bullets over the last 17 years, the results were never pleasing to my eyes. I once lost a nice bull elk because, I know sure as Elmer loved his .44mag, that .338 250 grain bullet did not mushroom, just penciled right on through that critter. He went over the top of the mountain and I could never get another shot or keep up with his pace. The elevation was over 9600ft. I then decided that I would from that day on, shoot all big game through both shoulders and never look back!!! Yes, I mean NO MORE heart/lung shots period.
I have had great success with Swift A Frame bullets on large animals. I also have used the Woodleigh solids with never a problem. These are my first choice and Trophy Bonded Bear Claws is my second choice.
