    4x5 muley jumped out nearly under my feet last fall. Finally squeezed off at 70
    yds. My only shot on a mammal all last season. Not the biggest buck taken in the neighborhood last year, but the biggest in my group.

    Hmmm.

    At the risk of sounding condescending, (since this is after all, a long range hunting website) I would say the energies involved were adequate to incapacitate and kill, regardless of predisposed theories regarding such.
