No penetrationSame as previous reviewer. I shot a deer from 42 yards away and he ran off just before dark. I squeeeezed the trigger and just knew I made a good shot. I waited 30mins to make sure. I got down and took my flashlight and couldn't find any blood anywhere! Finally after some time, I found a drop of blood the size of a pin head about 10 yds behind where the deer stood. After doing a grid search of the area, we found the deer about 60yds away.
I made a great shot. Right through the heart, but the bullet never went through the other side, and there was not much expansion. I was very disappointed in the bullet.

Lost a deerI have been using these bullets for about two years, and this is the first year i hve shot a deer with these. At first i thought i hit the buck the way he ran off, but there was no blood trail. I looked for about 45 mins for a blood trail and just couldnt find one. a week later i went the that same spot and there was an horable smell walked a 100 yards down the hill and there he was. when the bullet went in the entry hole closed up instantley. Sad loss...
