I have seen this happen once before, but on somebody else's hog. The second hog I shot, first shot, went all the way through, almost. The hog was knocked down and got back up and I hit it two more times. The shot was decent, through the boilerroom, breaking the humerus on the exit side, no doubt a fatal shot, just not DRT fatal. While taking pics, saw the glint of the base of the jacket.

That looks like it stopped right there on it's way in, not out. It looks like the jacket is peeling back towards you, not the other way. Am I seeing it wrong?

Looks can be deceptive which is part of what makes this so cool. If you saw the video, then you can see all of the jacket recovered. The bullet did not stop on the way in. It is on the way out. You can see how much of the jacket isn't peeled back. The bullet jacket simply inverted as sometimes happens when a bullet destabilizes going through a medium and the trailing jacket helped to keep it from exiting. The jacket is also slightly compressed laterally, indicating that it had tumbled.

Interesting! I've seen 'em just under the skin but never poking out.

Good job on the hogs, and the skunk, too.

What is the deal with your left hand? Why the wrap?

Oh, and thanks for another great post DNS!

Interesting....did you check the bullet and make sure it's same caliber and type you were shooting?
The only time I have seen something like this is when the bullet went thru an 80 to 90 pound pig and hit another one standing behind it.

Did I check it? No, but it looks exactly like what I have. I did check the wound channel going through the hog, LOL.

I dislocated my wrist about a month ago. So I have it in a wrist brace and the wrap is for my fingers to keep me from grabbing stuff I should not grab. It doesn't hurt unless I try to pull or lift anything. When I do, it cruelly reminds me that it is not healed. I leave the thumb and index finger free so that I don't have a completely useless stub.

I hunt pigs with air guns. I have a .257 that shoots a 80gr Hollow point slugs at 1020FPS making around 170fpe on contact at 70 yards. The bullets mushroom perfectly and on 2 separate occasions, I had this exact thing happen. Both times the mushroom head prevented a clean pass through.

it can happen, some bullets when going unstable and have mushroomed out flip over and the mushroomed out part of the bullet becomes much like a parachute giving more resistance going through.
