    had to chuckle last night. I shot a do doing crop damage with the 7stw at about 250 yards using a 150 ballistic tip. Shot felt good but the deer ran into the woods. Well at dark thirty i went over to look for it and no blood anywhere. We searched for a couple hours doing circles and i was about to call it a miss when I stumbled onto the deer. Only blood was about 3 feet away from it. I looked at it laying on the ground and my enterance hole was right behind the shoulder right where i aimed. Flipped the deer over and saw why there was no blood. There was about a half dollar sized exit wound in the ribs on the off side but there was about 6 inchs of lung hanglng out the hole plugging it!!!!!!
