Thanks Rich! Thankfully I have never had an issue. He was completely broadside at the top of a steep ridge. I wanted him down where he stood, not back to the bottom. So I took a center shoulder and he stood there for a few seconds and I gave him another. The bullets were 3" apart in the shoulder. Both made it through the far shoulder but did not exit. Both lungs were complete jello. He stumbled trying to turn and went down. The first one had him dead, but I was not taking a chance. As I said I wanted him down.
Through the shoulder and both hit ribs.
Far side where they both stopped after penetrating the second shoulder.
I did loose more meat than I like. But I find that consistant with most bullets placed like this. The good new is he was down and dead with no tracking or chance of a lost animal.
