Looking for some first Hand experience here. I took my newly acquired savage 111 in 30-06 out shooting today. Trying narrow down my bullet choices and get it sighted in. It shot the hornady sst superperformance 165's very well. My question is I will be doing a cow elk hunt this year and after reading a little bit about this particular bullet on elk sized game I'm a little nervous. It seems to be liked for deer size game but some people say it expands to fast and fragments so maybe not ideal penetration for elk? What are your thoughts, and has any one personally used these bullets on elk? Thanks! I attached a pic of the first three shots at 200 yds.
