Thank you WR! Sometimes I forget to look at my words through the eyes of others, especially when those words are meant to 'educate'.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Yah, we all I think get hung up in the vernacular sometimes and forget that there's quite a learning curve for the new guys just in terms of vocabulary.

Any shot that goes through the ribs should yield a stone dead animal upon retrieval with the proper bullet function IMO.
X2 on the dorsal aorta. My favorite moose shot other than a neck shot is the high shoulder taking out the artery and dropping them in their tracks. They expire as fast as a boiler room shot without the tracking.
