    I'm surprised it held together. The oak log must have helped in stay in one piece. They explode a prairie dog!!

    Yeah me too. The log I admit. Not a very good anolog for tissue and organs. The outside shell of the log was about two inches thick and the inside was all rotten. Slowed it don't really good. I don't know I'm pretty partial to the v-max.

    I was testing a couple loads at the range I thought a quarter inch piece of steel would hold up against my little v-max... I guess not..
