Videos

I broke them into 3 parts to help them load
Hope you enjoy.
As often happens it is hard to capture the excitment of the moment with the camera but you can take my word. I was maxed out

Congrats Buff, was the elephant broadside to you when you shot, camera angle looked like he was quartering towards you. I know you said you got 12in of penetration and rib on the kill shot, when you did your testing on the dead elephant you had complete penetration.

No he was pretty much broadside.
I think the deflecting off a rib is what slowed the penetration
