I have to start this with a slight confession. I’ve never given much consideration to bullet performance. Preferring instead to put it where it matters and let biology take over. With that out in the open, I was thoroughly impressed with Federal’s Premium 250 grain Trophy Bonded Bear Claw loading for the 375 H&H. The bullet below was recovered from one of the animals on my trip this year. The animal was facing me at about 120 yards. The bullet hit him in the center of the chest taking the top off the heart, continuing through the liver, and stopping in the intestines. After cleaning, it weighed in @ 247.5 grains. My math puts that at 99% weight retention and a perfect mushroom. Pretty good stuff. Made a believer out of me.
