Where did the bullets penetrate the deers? Was it lung shots or CNS?

Thanks again for your help!

No answer?

I have another question to.

You wrote that you have shot some "hogs". Do you mean Wild Boar or Ground Hogs?

I shot a whitetail doe with one at 125 yards out of a 22-243 and it dropped on the spot. It shattered the front shoulder then hamburgered the top half of the heart then shattered the offside shoulder. I would definitely not hesitate to use it on deer.
