What you're saying is you have a super effective gut shooting load, but a square lick on the shoulder knuckle might not end so well.

Turns the bone into shrapnel and still exits the other side.
So it can't hold together on a gut shot but holds together perfectly fine on a ball joint?
Rounds that fragment like that are just far too inconsistent for me to trust them.
I was actually surprised by the fact that the stomach contents could actually slow it down more effectively than bone can.

I don't know what you guys are shooting,

killing as many as six deer in a year between Texas and here.

will turn bone to shrapnel and go right out the other side on a whitetail with an exit wound the size of your fist

good night gals...
She bled out into the cavity so could have been a few minutes. But if I had to guess, I'd say she was down when it hit her the first time and had I not spooked her by putting a second round past her ear she would have stayed there. That's what happened with the other one 31 years ago.
Did you see the other deer I showed pics of a week or so ago
It's whitetails. Penetration is over rated. Kill it. Don't knock holes in it. You aren't bow hunting.
