Shock damage limited to about size of half dollar. 7 Rum on double lung leaves quarter size entrance hole, silver follar sized exit hole, and both lungs pure jello.
I can say with confidence, using any of the bullets I've used, (Core Lokts, Ballistic Tips, Accubonds, SSTs, Interlocks, Game Kings, Hot Cor, Pro Hunters, etc...) the 7-08 can produce that jello effect out to at least 250 yds. Does it every single time? Maybe not. But it certainly does more times than it doesn't.
