It's all about shot placement. Phil Sharpe, in the post-WW II update of his "Complete Guide To Handloading" has two vignettes.
He met a GI with a horrible facial scar. It seems that after the GI shot a German officer with his Carbine, apparently at close range, the officer managed to draw his Luger and return fire.
On a deer hunt with a group of US officers while in Germany, a small buck was jumped and they began shooting. The deer finally succumbed, but with almost sixty wounds before dying. GI ammo and a running deer.
So, care about shot placement, use of proper ammo, and good judgement about circumstance and distance.
