Re: 140 gr 6.5mm Hybrid for hunting?
Bullet placement. Hit & run = nothing vital struck. I have had 1 doe go at least 200 yards after being double lunged with a 50 cal muzzle loader, she just didn't know she was dead. But I can usually find game within 200 yards. For that reason, I try to avoid lung shots, even though it is a pretty sure way to avoid a bunch of damage to useable meat. A head shot, or neck shot or just behind the shoulder, or just in front of the shoulder if quartering toward the shooter will put the game down.
