Outperforms leverevolution in my Marlin

Date:November 21, 2012
Used the supreme elite in my 44 magnum Marlin lever gun last weekend on an Indiana deer hunt. Sighted in to 1.1 inches @ 100 yds, where leverevolution shoots +/- 7 inches from my gun @ that range. Dropped an 8 point in his tracks from 105 yds. I'm sold.

454 Casull Dual Bond

Date:November 2, 2009
Most handgun hunters will end up using this bullet on game under 250 pounds, but I wanted to try it on something a good deal larger-elk.
I got a shot at a spike bull from about 60 yards with my open-sighted, 4 3/4-inch Freedom Arms in .454 Casull. He stood at a quartering angle and from the time I shot until the bull was down was just under 13 seconds.
The bullet penetrated the shoulder blade about 4 inches down from the top, took out two ribs and lodged next to the stomach on the off-side of the body cavity. Penetration on the elk was approximately 28 inches and included some very significant damage to the soft tissue and bones. The recovered bullet exhibited retention of nearly 90 percent of the original 260 grains, and it did expand to double the original diameter. The reason for the slight loss in weight is because three of the inner petals ripped off, most likely from contacting the shoulder and rib bones while still at a high velocity.
Based on my observations on the elk, this bullet may be a little light for anything larger because of its expansion characteristics unless you limit your shots to broadside encounters and try to avoid heavy shoulder bones in the largest animals. I'm certain this bullet will fully penetrate deer and other medium game from all but very oblique angles, and will likely fully penetrate larger game on broadside shots with proper bullet placement at reasonable distances.
