Looks like a bad shot contributed to it. The exit wound I mean.

Without hitting the femur or something solid that just isn't possible. I have personally shot a 40lb antelope with a .300 mag FMJ AT 100 yds and there was literally no exit wound, thing just collapsed from the pressure/energy.

Flame away

re: What Caused This Exit Wound?


I have two young boys. Just now shooting a single shot .22

Does anyone else feel uneasy about an 8 yr old wielding an AK? Im not trying to point blame or call anyone out. I'm just curious at what age y'all all started hunting and stalking with high powered rifles alone?

Btw I agree that bullet hit bone and that appears to be a ham not a shoulder.

It's just a normal gun. If the kid can handle a .22 he can handle an AK... They both require the same safety precautions. And OP was actually watching the kid do his Elmer Fudd stalk.

ETA: I first deer hunted completely alone around 9 or 10 with a .243 in a box stand about a mile from my dads stand. Started squirrel hunting alone at around 8 with a youth model 870 20 gauge

Actually you can get an FMJ to exit like that almost every time if you know what you're doing.

The trick is to hit solid meat on the entry...this causes the round to keyhole and knock the animal down right away. So actually aim for the shoulder and let it exit somewhere out the chest cavity.

I've personally see many, many deer taken this way on military bases with the M-16.

Now if you hit the chest cavity on entry with FMJ, it'll just drill a clean little hole and the animal runs off.

I have no issues with AK's but to say a 11 lb 34.5 inch center fire rifle producing 1500 fl lb of ME is equally manageable by the average 8 yr old as a 31" 3 lb rim fire rifle producing 100 fllb ME, is foolish.




Eta: i have shot many many hogs with FMJ. 223 at ranges as close as 10 yards and I promise ya the round will zip right through everything but bone with minimal destruction. They will run off and die but good luck on producing that type of exit wound.
