I went elk hunting in Arizona unit 27. On December 3rd I shot an elk at 125 yards with a home load of a Hornady 165 grain SST. The bull went 25 yards and dropped. I took out both lungs and we retrieved the bullet. The bullet weight after the retrieval was 104.2. The bullet did a great job on the bull.
