I've attached photos of 3 Hornady Great Plains bullets (.54 caliber, 425 gr.) that I've recovered from elk I shot, using 100 gr. of ffG black powder. Two of the bullets each broke both shoulders (one spike bull and one adult cow) and lodged under the hide on the off side. Final bullet weights were 340 gr., 345 gr. and 400 gr. respectively. Excellent performance!
