    150gr Swift Scirocco out of my 308win at 2600fps.
    A friend took a Blue Wildebeest bull at 133m. Fully broadside, slightly high shoulder shot. Bull dropped on the spot

    Recovered bullet was 138gr, so 92% weight retention

    This bullet was from 100 m closer than the gemsbuck bullet, yet did same job and same ending up position, but after through a lot of bone.

    I'm VERY impressed with that bullet, considering it broke shoulder joint and still fully penetrated the animal's insides, SPECIALLY when considering it's a BWB.
