Default Barnes XFB pics

A while ago Paul asked me for some pics of the 200gr Barnes XFB that I recovered from the elk that I shot last year. And finally here they are. The velocity at the muzzle was 2900fps. The elk was 305 yards and it was an almost head on shot. Velocity at impact was 2282fps with 2312 foot pounds of energy. The bullet penetrated almost completely through the animal and I found it just under the hide of the off side flank. It had actually cut a hole in the hide it just didn't have enough power to fall on to the ground.
