I jumped on the band wagon @ 5-6 yrs ago and bought a Savage MLII, it was a safe queen for the first two yrs. until I could finance the goodies to go with it(scope,etc)
I finally got it up and running and two yrs. ago shot a nice 4pt. buck the first time out with it.(96yd. shot, dropped in his tracks) I was beyond impressed.
Well, yesterday.........the opener of mzldr season here in NY, the ole Savage spoke again.
I am still using the bullets and sabots that came with the gun(250gr XPT's? over 76grs of H4198)
This shot was at @ 30 yds. and the bullet hit a 3/4" dead tree branch @ 3ft. off the muzzle which deflected it into the frt. shoulder, the bullet was a total pass through (didn't notice the exit hole until I skinned it after getting it home. (exit hole was only thumb dia. sized)

X2. You sure thats not the exit and that thumb sized hole you mentioned isn't the entrance? Ive seen them shot with a .338 Lapua and nowhere near that damage on entrance.

probably mushroomed when it hit the dead branch, turning a 50 cal bullet into a 85 cal...
