A change in bullet might be in order, if nothing else to restore your confidence.
I hope not. They were both moving like they hadn't been shot hours later (3 or 4 hours for the first and 13-15 hours afterwards for the second). I haven't seen any buzzards around the areas either.
I tested the 150 BT on a hog last night with similar results. The only difference is I tried to intentionally gut shoot him. The light was fading fast though so it's hard to say what happened. He was at a little under 100 yards and took up about 80% of the FOV on 22x so I centered and squeezed (crosshairs to hard to see and the illumination was to bright). If I can recover him it'll be interesting to see what the bullet did.
