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.
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.
