WR that's the exact opposite of what I've seen time after time. The 5x5 muley I shot last year at 100yrds was quartering away pretty hard and moving out, the bullet never touched bone till it exited, he dropped midstride and the small white tail doe I shot 2 weeks later at 400yrds dropped so fast my daughter was wondering where it went. That bullet touched one rib going in, and coming from my 270 with a MV of about 2750 it sure isn't setting any records for retained velocity.
Not trying to be argumentative about it mind you just find it funny (odd) that folks can have such consistently different results from the same product, now on the other hand I've not been overly impressed so far with the terminal ballistics of the AB. It works just as advertised but, critters tend to walk around a bit after taking one. BTW I try to avoid heavy bone, but I'm about filling the freezer 1st, so when the opportunity presents I'll take a neck/head shot every time.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
