I came out here prepared for 1000 yards and made a shot on the buck at freakin 40 yards. I hit him high in the lungs. Exit wound was about 1 1/2". He ran 100 yards and I watched him fall. Here's exactly what I found when I got to him, massive blood loss. When I rolled him onto his back the same amount of blood in the pic poured out of the exit side. I had to drag him five yards so I wouldn't be wading in blood. Elk, whitetail, javelena, and now Mulie buck and the bullet is batting a thousand. Lung on the ground, and lung fragments in the ribcage.

Call me picky, but I want a trackable blood trail without complete annihilation...

Really. I mean really you're gonna talk smack about that much dead. I never looked for a trail because I hit him, I watched him run, I watched him fall and it was over. Annihilation of his lungs, nothing else. There's no pleasing some people

Was he nursing when you pulled the trigger, or did you let him finish?

wanna see a head shot on a hog..

do you normally want the bullet placement behind the shoulder or do you go high to go after the spine? always wanted to try spine shots esp with the 300 win mag in 208 or 230 bergers
