Chances are that was the case. The proper bullet in the proper location should be the goal for every shooter. Just buying a box off the shelf isn't really sufficient.

No maybe saw its guts hanging out as it drug it self back in the whole. Holes in lungs kill stuff. I have shot deer with a multitude of boolits from smk,amax,scenars to nbt,acubonds and tsx with others in the mix. Shot with any thing from the fast 6mm to the .375 and one thing is proven agin and agin hit in the correct spot stuff dies plain and simple. It is nice living in gods country go catch limit of walleyes in morning and then go to dog town and between them and steel but a couple hundred rounds down range. This year shot dogs all winter along with yotes. The problem is more with the shooer than the gun being shot as most take the gun out nov 1 and sight in and but it back in the safe end of november then when they miss they blame every thing except their crappy shooting ability. give me some one who shoots a small cal acurate over some one who shoots a big one to just hit a pie plate every day and i will show you dead critters. give me a fast twist 6mm pushing the 105 amax or 115 dtac and under a 1000 lazer beam is what comes to mind
