    How bad was the meat detroyed? Did you waste a lot of shoulder meat? That would be my only concern about the Berger bullet and no exit hole.

    The meat was in perfect shape. The only area that I cut away was the entrance hole, where I cut away 2-3" inches of meat between the ribs. It looked like the Berger did exactly what it is supposed to.. Penetrate 2-3 inches and EXPLODE! There was no evidence of the bullet even getting close to the off side.

    I used to live in Payson. In fact I was born there. Actually I was born at Luke AFB but we lived in payson when I was born. I lived there again for a while in my early twenties. My cousin Rex still lives there. I stay with him when I bowhunt deer there.
