Hit a large buck in the shoulder with it last night.
He was 48lb larder weight.
Entry wound hit his shoulder and literally exploded, four distinct paths through him, one of which took the top of his heart and had 12 exit wounds in itself.
Is this normal? Hell of a lot of meat waste compared to the 95 grain Federal vital shock in my .243.
On the plus side I have now blooded my 6.5, used my Monarch Roe sack for the first time (damn good bit of kit) and saw my first ked - this was maybe not a positive as I itched for hours afterwards at the thought.
As an aside, although he was a big lad, his antlers were just over an inch of stub each, he had a huge amount of fat in him - the most I have ever seen, but for three or four minutes I thought he was a doe and watched for an accompanying buck. Big lad, small balls.
