    I have never had a problem either I was just worried that with a shoulder shot they might fragment .I don't want to loose a big bull .

    They won't fragment. I have bullets that retained 99% of their weight after hitting dirt and rocks. You'll be fine, especially with them coming out of your 30 cal.

    I got my cow tag filled this year with one. Been using them, Barnes, for years. My .300 loves them.

    I only use barnes bullets these days as they give me thhe accuracy that I want and the penetration that makes blood trailing easy.
    I always say that accuracy trumphs everything even with archery. My .308 tikka with 130 gn. TTX gets me .25 " groups at a 100 with my .270 (130 gn.) and .338 (225 gr.) grouping .75" out of a Rem. and Tikka respectively. I figure if I don't kill an animal with these bullets it is a OM (Operator Malfunction) problem. Truthfully you can kill any animal with a .22 cal if you hit them right but I would rather have too much bullet than too little .Last year I killed 3 antelope , 2 mule deer and 4 whitetails and had complete penetration on all of them with huge wound channels. The Barnes bullets more than do the job. BTW all of mine are hand loaded , but I think Fed. Premiums are close in accuracy without all the time invested.

    I shot this hog at about 275 yards with a 150 gr TTSX @2900 fps. Dropped him in his tracks. This boar had 2.5" armor plate and the bullet performed flawlessly. Elk should be cake for this bullet... even shoulder shots.
