My buddy has a Nosler M48 Mountain Carbon in 33 Nosler and is running the 265 gr ABLR factory load at 2750 fps. He shot a crop damage for at 40 yards quartering on just in front of the shoulder and recovered it under the hide in front of the hind quarter. The bullet penetrated about 30" and the recovered weight is 156.8 grs.
