Taylorco1...... Didn't find the bullet but didn't really look either. I don't gut deer, I just hang em up, skin em, debone all the meat and drag the carcass and guts off.
As far as the SST ruining meat, I had a entrance wound in the ribs and that was it. I usually don't mess with the rib meat anyway. So no meat ruined. FWIW.
