Guess the projectile??

Since there seems to be a lot of my bullet vs your bullet going on lately I though it would be fun to see what you think based on a picture of the animal during cutting. We kill game with a wide variety of stuff so it's interesting to see what happens
First batter up is a tasty morsel of the whitetail variety. I'll get the next pic a little bigger but the entire side of it is jello and blood shot!!

    Back in the day I've duplicated that pic many times until I learned to back off at least 250 yards.

    270 Win/130 Sierra spbt/58.5 gr RL-22/3190 FPS.

    I suppose other bullets do the same thing but I have the copyright on this one.
