It only lasted a few seconds, but they can sure cover some country in a few seconds. Big chunk of lung sticking out far side, and plenty of internal damage.
I shot my first Antelope near Claunch, NM when I was 12.
Hit him four times in the heart and lungs. I was shooting a Rem Semi Auto .243.
I never missed, and my spotter/living bipod told me the first shot was dead through the heart at 140yds, next three through the lungs and he died finally 305 paces from where he was first shot.
I was utterly Amazed. Homer just kept saying, "Hit'm again, "Hit'm, Again...
Being an excited kid I was sure I'd missed all four times and he finally just died of fright till we got up to him.
What a mess HA!
