Re: Nosler long range accbond and my experience.
I shot every animal this year with a shot that affected the spine between the middle of the neck and the shoulder and only one did not require me to dispatch the animal when I got to it, ya they were immobile but very far from a clean kill IMO. If the wound channels are thin a spine shot is not lethal unless it's very far forward, if your wound channel cuts the dorsal aorta it's very lethal and any shot that goes under the spine should affect that artery if the bullet is creating a large permanent wound channel not just pushing a bullet through tissue.
Any shot that goes through the ribs should yield a stone dead animal upon retrieval with the proper bullet function IMO.
