You shot them both behind the shoulder. Both were dead with 1 shot. An accubond wouldnt have killed em any deader. Animals fall down when they are in the mood. The only slug I've seen never fail is the big .338 stuff. Shoot enuf and they will all do somethin weird. The deer you shot seems impossible but a bullet will do a lot of weird things at times. Ive never had a pencil thru with that bullet even at stoopid ranges but I wont say it cant happen.
When ya fling lead at an animal anything can occur.
But remember that both the animals were dead as soon as you shot them. Its a medical impossibility that a deer can take a 210 gr 30 cal at 3k thru the boilerroom expanded or not and live. So the bullet did its job it was just a hair slower than you wanted. Next time hit some bone. I like quartering shots myself and always try to paste a shoulder when I can but I dont worry about it too much. An animal shot thru the heart or lungs is dead. Ive killed a bunch of critters with a 22lr. It works.
