I was using the 338gr. platinum and my brother from PA was using the 295 gr. copper plated. No real reason - it just turned out that way.

I really want to post a pic but it seems to be to large. Any hints on how to do it.

I was shooting the 338 gr. platinum and my brother was shooting the 195 gr. copper plated. The bullet we recovered appears to be the copper plated which means I whiffed. Anyway, it's all good since Ive taken my share of bulls and this is his first. I really want to post a pic but it appears to big. Am i doing something wrong?

By the way, this bull only went about 30 yards (double lunged) with hardly a trace of blood.

Took us 3 trips and about 9 miles to get him out. Not bad for a 58 & 61 year ol.

RCIII I'll send you a PM with my EMAIL and you can send me the pic. I'll convert it for you (size it appropriately) and send it back to you or post it up for you here. Either one you prefer.
