Re: 2 TX Deer with SGK\'s
Nighthunter not trying to be a jerk as I stated before, however I have a pretty good amount of knowledge in the particular area, and alot of times what people see, how they explain it, and what really caused it are different things.
[Quoted by Nighthunter]"but noticed that the exit wounds were fairly small; indicating very little expansion."[end qoute]
Now that could be true, and you did not specify what the damage was to the internal organs, however when I read/hear something like that it makes me cringe. Most of the time it happens just like your post, little exit hole, so assume little expansion. Take that same shot with a fragmenting(ie. SGK) type of bullet. By the time its exited, only the base may be left, leaving a small exit hole, even though the bullet created massive damage to the internal tissue.
No big deal, but when someone that does not know better it becomes gun shop "fact", and before you know it Matchkings don't kill deer.
[Quoted by Budlight] "It didn't impart any energy on the animal it went threw so fast."[end qoute]
Ok this ones asinine. "Energy" persay does not kill, tissue disruption does. How "fast" a bullet goes through an object has little effect outside of hydrostatic shock, temerary strech cavity, and what effect the speed has on the bullet causing it to deform in some way. The more velocity an expanding bullet has when it strikes a target, the MORE disruption it will cause.
[Qouted by Budlight]"I just don't believe that lung shots are good unless your doing long shots and you require a bigger kill zone."[end qoute]
Ok real question here as to the rational behind that.
Nighthunter, I should have asked you why you came to those conclusions first.
Ps., I like your screen qoute.
