Actually, that makes no sense at all. It seems to follow the old myth that bullets need "time to expand". Bullets don't need "time", they need energy.

Typically, what happens with bullets that can't handle the entire energy range is that they will shatter/explode at close range and may not exit, mushroom properly at medium range and at long range not mushroom at all and pass through "like a target point".

The only plausible explanation, IMO, is that you've experienced a statistical fluke. In order for the observation to represent a valid phenomenon, you'd have to repeatedly shoot similar animals with the same bullet type, from the same distance, in the same spot on their bodies, not 2 or 3 or 5 times but 10 or 20 or 30.

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
