I know we have all argued over whether or not we want a bullet to exit a animal or not but I have to tell you all about the debate I just got in here in my shop. A friend of my families and local deputy sheriff sniper came in our shop and we bagan talking about ballistics. After a while he begins arguing that he doens't believe in knock down power of bullets. He says that if a bullet actually had enough power to stop or knockover a animal the gun would do the same thing to the person shooting it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif Now I am not a genious, hell half the time I can't even spell right, but I have always been brought up to believe that a bullet carries a certain amount of energy with it and deposits this energy into the object that causes it to stop. He did say that bullet does have forward inertia but he said that it doesn't actually do anything to game animals. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif now I am not wanting to start another arguement whether or not we want a bullet to stop in a animal or exit but please tell me if what he was saying is correct but I just don't understand it.
