As promised: I picked up 60lbs of venison baloney last night (1/2 batch hot and 1/2 batch hot with milled cheddar cheese through out.)
The bullet was recovered on the opposite side under the hide. It broke ribs, liquified the lungs and heart.. It shed its jacket and leaving lead pieces in a 6" hole of shrapnel. Pieces of lead were in the back bone. Obviously it was a explosive round dumping all its energy, even at 175 yards.
The 240 grain XTP bullet had a recovery weight of 127 grains.
My 44mag hunting load:
Powder AA#9 20.3 grains
Hornady XTP 240 JHP
CCI mag primer
Notice the smooth areas on the bullet face as it broke through bone.
