Took the heart completely out, fist sized exit wound. It ran for over 150 yards,
Heart shot a big buck with a 150 grain .308 Winchester at about 50 yards. Deer turned and ran/stumbled 175 yards down a steep gully. i regretted shooting that deer numerous times before getting him out of that gully.

Something I found interesting with my 25-06. 100gr Hornady into the chest cavity and light's on right there. Lots of damage inside. Switched to 117gr Hornady and with the same shot, most deer would walk off 15 or 20 feet and lie down dead. Not near the damage in the deer. I shot a porcupine with that 100gr bullet and it blew up like a water melon!
