Sure. Here's a pronghorn shot with a 150 SST from a 308 at 234 yards:
This is probable blow up on impact, no penetration of the light boned scapula on a broadside shot. Just a huge flesh wound. It took additional shots at close range to kill this small animal and the final shot was with a different bullet.
I've never seen a ballistic tip do this, ever. Not even close. And I don't consider the 150 SST to be "screaming" from a 308 either.
