Curious, did you recover the bullet and if so what did it weigh and look like? Guessing impact velocity was down pretty low at that distance.

I recovered a tiny piece of it. It went just behind the shoulder bone but through some meat on one side, both lungs and heart and still exited but there was a perfect little cone shaped circle of lead that weighed about 20 grains on the exit side just under the skin. It was flat on one side and cone shaped on the other. I don't know if it was the front of the bullet or what.
