    Maybe we are just using different words. I've found that, as you say Diamondhitch, the Barnes makes a small hole going in, but I've usually had a decent size hole coming out (and most do come out), but that damage in the middle - what you call carnage - I think of as lots of damage. So on the same page after all?

    +1 with that exact 300 Win Mag. Took 11 trophies in 2012 ranging from Wart Hog through Eland from 100-250 yards. Has much more reach that non-mag .30 calibers and the recoil isn't bad. Excellent ballistics and terminal velocity.
