Maybe but, might be shot placement???
I stand corrected.
Regarding shot placement. Friday morning I took three roe deer with my 22-250 tikka. The shots were about 180m and 3 seconds apart. Ammo was psp Magtec 50gn. First two dropped on the spot with no movement. The third went 8m (from blood blast to body). Nos 1 & 2 were as aimed thru' the aorta, neither hit bone and left a neat 1cm exit hole. The third shot was misplaced back an inch or so (because I did not allow for the beast turning slightly) hit a bone on the way in and made a mess on the way out. What was left of the lungs were cooked. PLACEMENT IS ALL
