Re: Close Range MK Results

I finally got it figured out! Started butchering the deer this morning before work, and found the entry wound for the 200 grain SMK. It hit high on the shoulder at a sharp angle to the opposing side of the deer. It hit the spine shattering it, then scated along the inside of the rib cage before exiting on the off side through, close to the last rib. When looking at the deer while it hangs I noticed that the bullet actually traveled in a very straight line before exiting. Hmmm, lets see what those controlled expansion bullet boys say! This bullet did a lot of heavy damage to the skeletal structure of this animal, but damage to tissue was light in comparison. There was some bleeding under the skin above the back, but not much considering the shape the heart was in. The next stumper, was it shock from the impact of the bullet that destroyed the heart? The bullet was above it. Any opinions?
