You can see a ridge on the surface which is an exaggeration of a line that the top of the ramp puts in the bullet when I close the bolt. It may be that it creates a weakness when the bullet impacts and the same has happened on the bullets pictured above…
    I would seriously try to figure out where it's going wrong. This kind of thing causes jams.
    Slow motion photography might be a great help in figuring it out. Lots of modern cell phones have the ability to do this.

    It’s a CZ 550 magnum action out of their custom shop. The “kink” doesn’t stop cycling but it leaves an impression on the meplat. I’m overseas for a while but when I’m reunited with my rifle next month I’ll take a photo of a cycled round.

    143gr Hornady ELD-x recovered from a young eland bull.

    Hornady Precision Hunter factory 6.5 PRC ammo.
    Muzzle velocity ±2920fps.
    Range ±250m.
    Quartering away shot, entry in crease behind left shoulder, bullet recovered under skin in front of right shoulder.
    Eland ran ±30m before dropping.
    Recovered weight 76.5gr (53%)

    This is neither the bullet nor the caliber I would recommend for hunting eland but the hunter using it is a very good marksman and an experienced hunter who was willing to pass up a shot unless he got an opportunity from an acceptable angle.

    Got this from a Client of mine.
    SBC .375 300gr out of this buff.

    Don’t have the retained weight yet.

    Arguably the best bushveld hunting bullet on the market. The availability of premium hunting bullets like these has changed the .375 H&H from being a marginal caliber for buffalo into a very capable buffalo cartridge.
