I am working up a load and sighting a new rifle in at the same time. The rifle belongs to a buddy and he wants to use it for extreme long range Elk hunting in Colorado. I am trying the Hornady Amax 750 grain match bullet here. I shot it at a 1 inch mild steel plate to see if the match bullet would punch through. It did not penetrate the plate but made a shallow divot in the steel. Knowing the bullet didn't hold together and penetrate the steel makes me think it would likely expand on soft tissue. Punching a 50 cal hole in an elk is great, but imagine if it expanded like standard hunting bullets. What an exit wound!!
