They didn't move after the shot because damage was done to the central nervous system (CNS), it has nothing to do with the cartridge. I've dumped them with a .243 Win and had some run off after being shot by my .338-06. If you don't take the CNS out most aniamls will run away after being shot. If you take out both lungs like you did then there isn't a whole lot of tracking. The stories I love are the when "I made the perfect broad side shot on a (insert animal), but after several hours and many of miles of tracking I couldn't find anymore blood, and lost the trail." Obviously the perfect shot wasn't made, or else they would have found the animal, they don't go that far with no lungs.
