I shot a deer once throw the center of it's gut at just over 500 yards hit no bone with a 338-378 weatherby with a 225 sst bullet and it dropped in its tracks.But it was a mess to clean.

Now that's a nice bison, and a nice picture to boot! Thanks for posting it.

Look up shooting holes in wounding theories. This stuff can be explained by science. It isn't magic. I read this whole essay a few years ago, it is dry science but well worth reading. If you (anybody) wants to know how bullets kill then read it.

Read that whole thing, in large part it's pretty well how I always figured it. I like his comparisons between 2 very different cartridges, have the same energy yet one is advised while the other is advised against.

I did the exact thing 20 years ago or so with a different caliber. What a mess, nothing but gut soup to scoop out
