    Here is a Coues Deer I shot last year with my new Grendel AR build. It was a 300 yard frontal shot. Missed my target area slightly and the bullet went along the right shoulder blade. After it passed the shoulder blade the bullet split. One piece exited the hide and the other piece into the vitals. Deer took off running after the first shot and I was able to hit it one more time on the run but it was a gut shot. Deer only went 40 yards before expiring. I was using 28.5 grains of 8208 XBR behind a 123 grain SST in Hornady brass.

    Cant figure out how to get my images upload with Google Chrome. If anyone has any ideas let me know. Otherwise here is my summary.

    One shot through shoulder bullet stopped just under the skin midway behind opposite shoulder. Double tapped the brain just for good measure.

    Try a PM to the OP.

    THE SUMMARY CHARTS HAVE DISAPPEARED!

    Alos, it seems that several posters' images have fallen victim to Photobucket's change in policy.

    doe antelope, full grown.
    200 yards
    123 sst Hornady factory
    18" Grendelhunter.com upper

    First shot anchored the doe by hitting the spine. Additionally it blew a hole through both backstraps as well.
    I'm probably switching to copper next year.
    Finishing shot through the neck at close range.

    No doubt that if I'd done my part, she would have fallen right there to the first shot.
