    Was hoping no one was going to ask that. Was front on shot, deer stepped forward down slip and bullet went over head and straight down spine found it next to ass. No back steaks off this one.

    Did it touch a bit of " green" or passed over?
    Good that you recovered the deer and the bullet any way.

    Wow, I didn't think they held together that well. I wonder if the 162's hold together like that, I might try and recover some...

    They're great projectiles, I've never experienced the 'blow up' that people speak of.
