I have 5 deer with a Marlin 1895. Handloaded 325 grain FTX. Ranges 35-85 yards and all bullets went through the chest at some angle. All pretty much bang flops. The one buck that I killed was not a surprize. He did not have a hole in his heart, he had 3/4 pound of hamburger for a heart.

That being said I will no longer take shots angled towards me. The shoulder meat is toast.
