Bullet Performance Database

Mauser M03 with my 375 H&H barrel, 24 inch. Handloads with Barnes 300 Grain TSX's over RL15, Fed 215M, R-P new brass, Lee Crimp. Chrono'd at 2475 FPS.

#1 -Cape Buffalo, frontal shot, 35 meters at base of neck, Recovered in stomach. 93% weight retention.(one petal broke off). Buff down after a ~75 meter run.
#2- Eland, 90 meters, shoulder quartering away. Recovered under skin on opposite side. 100% weight retention. Hip-hop and down.

These are the few projectiles I ever recovered during various adventures, most times they are pass throughs.
My hunting partner wants to try Barnes in his 9.3 this fall on moose. I suspect they will blow thru, but it will be a interesting test.
Again thanks
Pat
