ok a month ago i went hunting in south texas and had failure with a 168grn speer soft point. it went in at the shoulder and ended up under skin on the opposite side under the skin on the rear haunch. deer was standing 90 degree broadside about 75 yards.
everything looks good deer ran about 75 yards.
took the following pics after skinning. this is the entry much bigger than i expected.
this the exit wound. top is where it left gut area. the small red spot near the bottom is where the bullet lodged under the skin. it never broke the skin at the exit.
total meat loss from that nastiness was very minimal. the shot pretty much took a left turn after entering the torso it vaporized the heart and lungs. from the outside you cant tell what happened.
