Animals can be tough even after taking out both lungs and heart. How many times have hunters stated they had to shoot animals more than once? I've been there myself. Three shots with a partition all thru the lungs to include one of the shots thru the heart. The deer stood there after two shoots looking at me as if nothing happened. After the third shot the deer ran off out of sight. When gutting the deer I couldn't believe the thing lived that long with three good shots and yet it still ran off. The bullets performed as expected, the deer didn't. It was a dead deer after the first shot but just didn't want to die as I wanted it to. It looks as if the LRABs performed as designed, same as the partitions above.
Shoot CONFIDENT, Shoot SMART, Shoot STRAIGHT
