Would it make you worry if a 6.5mm 130 ab from a 6.5-284 at > 3000fps didn't pass through a 172 pound whitetail buck from SC at a distance of about 1 yard?
I killed my buck, dropped him at 60 yards with a pass through, with the first shot, walked up on him and he was still blinking so I put a second one in him at point blank and I recovered that bullet. I'm not sure what to think about that myself.
I guess not really. I have seen weird stuff personally happen with them but a little more extreme velocity than that. Before we started really long ranging we shot a lot of 338 rums. We only shot to 700 max and was not the best. But we ran the 180 accubonds and 3550 fps. My dad shot this bull at 60 yards 3 times and let me tell you the only thing that saved him was three hits. Those bullets barely made it into the chest cavity and that bull never bled one drop. I am sure people will say this or that but that is how it was.
