Thread: Good? Bad? What happened here?

    Good? Bad? What happened here?

    Can anybody hazard a guess as to what happened here? I will elaborate once a few brave souls have chanced their reputations...

    (Stating the obvious is only for naughty boys.)

    Edit - My apologies, badly phrased. That's the Heineken catching up on the 05:00 start. Given the relative sizes of the entry and exit wounds can you offer any suggestions as to what type of bullet was used and the consequent reaction?

    As your attached pics are titled 'Entry' and 'Exit' I'll go for the obvious QI answer.

    Looks to be to far back, SP bullet used??? Not expanded as it hit nothing to start the expansion, or didn't have enough time to expand in soft tissue. I'd say the deer ran but after arching his (assuming it's a Buck) back, ran on a little. Followed up by either dog or second shot to end his life.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    centralbelt & tartinjock - perfectly plausible explanations but incorrect, I'm afraid. Any more?

    standard in and out a little back with a ripped diaphragm and slightly burst rumen probably by a lead free bullet by the uniform neat exit damage. Run of about 15 yards. If not, it's a good story

    I'm with Paul on the non-lead bullet

    I think the entry is a bit of a red herring

    The exit is where it's at....

    Ok, the hole is rather small, and (if I've got the picture the right way up ) it's a tad on the high side to my eye, but not as far back as the entry, so deer slightly quartering away?... I reckon it probably dropped to the shot, or almost. As to why the hole is so small... hmmm... passed perfectly between ribs on both sides? Decided not to expand? Federal soft point? I feel a bit low saying that as I use .243 Federal and have only had one 'whizzer', but others have had some punch straight through and some do the the crazy inside the carcass!
