You’re absolutely right since our targets are really 3 dimensional and not 2D like a piece of cardboard or paper.

I learned this using my rubber dummy as a Target.

Even a “head shot” can just graze the face or forehead and not be successful.

Hitting the body in center of mass is most important. It is where the heart and blood vessels live. The thorax is where the lungs occupy the space.

Though many focus on tight groups, a shot to the left and right thorax can fill the chest cavity with blood.

We as hunters aim for the thorax above the shoulder to penetrate both lungs. Lot harder on a person who is in front of us.



As you can see from many shots, a shot to the head can graze a non vital area. It is best to shoot between the eyebrows and the upper lip to hit what drives the target.
