Here is a link to the vid.
160 yrds longrange? How about for a 5 year old?
Yup Jeff, I saw it. Although there was a lot of damage I didn't clearly see the wound channel except the for the exit which looked quite large. I agree it looks like the bullet expanded and a small part of it exited but the OP didn't mention finding any fragments and I didn't see any. I have never seen an exit wound like that, that showed a large hole in the flesh and a small one in the hide. Were there fragments under the hide? Did the bullet tumble and exit point or tail first? Was the damage due to hydraulic effect?
If there were fragments, case solved. If not, it remains a mystery.
And yup, the bullet did its job one way or another. I just like to learn the details to have a better understanding of these sort of anomalies.
