    I had a post going but it got deleted with the new forum /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif So I'm starting a new one.

    I figure this could be a real help in showing newbies, or people that think SMK's "pencil right through" in what really happens with match bullets.

    Any pics you have of exit wounds using MATCH BULLETS please post. Just put what range, caliber and wieght, bullet type, and angle.


    The first

    308yds 220gr SMK 300tommy DOTS(droped on the spot)

    [​IMG]

    302yds 220gr SMK 300tommy crashed about three feet then fell

    290yds 220SMK 300tommy ran in a circle for about 40yds then fell.

    This one wierd. I shot this doe the evening before in the neck. You can see the exit hole(about 3in). I did not find her untill the next morning, and truthfully I didn't know if it was the same deer untill I shot her. I was following the blood trail when she jumped out her bed, quite alive, and seeming non the worse for the wear. She did not survive the second shot. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif First shot 280yds, second, 87yds. 190grSMK 300winmag. Second shot was DOTS.

    [​IMG]

    40yds 300winmag 190SMK. DOTS.

    [​IMG]

    110yds 190SMK 300winmag ran almost TWO HUNDRED YARDS with that shot, even though there was nothing left inside. Just liquid /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif. Blood trail looked like a horror movie.

    And my favorite. The biggest hole of them all. 19 inches long 9 inches wide /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif. Quarting to me shot entered point of left shoulder, exited... Well you see where it exited. Crappy picture I know. It was taken two days later after it had been hanging(still was) and drying(shrinking) at the time of the kill it was bigger /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif. 35yds 190SMK 300winmag. DOTS

    [​IMG]

    I've got more when I can get them put on a cd I'll post them.

    If you have any questions just ask. If you any pictures please post. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Charles, I had to change something in the control panel. So...if you edit your post one more time...this time use the original 'Image' method again as did I.

    That last neck wound is why I don't like neck shots at all. You either have to hit perfect center or get super lucky and by missing low catch the blood pipelines. OR cut the esophagus and or windpipe and let the deer suffer a slow death from infection. Or you go high and have a superficial wound that normally heals just fine.

    Add all those errors to a center lung shot and they all become certain kills.

    Some of those exit wounds are HUGE. And one wonders with a wound like that some run, with pin holes others drop. Just depends on the situation.

    Another good photo is of the spine snapped. Look at it from the outside and the shot is not super high. Shows how low the spine sits. Especially when going into the neck. Lots of non vital tissue above the spine. Especially for arrows.

    Now that I know that the SMK can open that violently, I'm gonna stay away from them. If you would hit anything other than ribs you may have no deer left.

    Thanks for the info.

    Jeff

    Rost495, everything you said is absulutly correct. I VERY RARELY aim for the neck. In fact the shot you mention I did not mean to hit the neck, the deer had its head down, facing me a little more then I thought /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif.

    Here is a blesbuck shot at 470yds with a 220 Swift. Muzzle velocity was 4400 fps and the rifle has now been rechambered to a wildcat (22 x 64) raising mv to 4700 fps.

    The meat damage is low but the lungs were completely smashed.

    Entrance hole

    Exit hole

    Gerard, Just how big is a blesbuck? It looks to be in the 150lb range, like a small-medium whitetail. What type of bullet were you using?
    Thanks,
    Rick
