Well thats how it works, if you shoot something perfectly in the vitals and a bullet fails and the animal isnt recovered, you cant call it a failure because you didnt recover the bullet and prove it. However, if you did recover it and had jacket separation or a really poor wound channel you cant call it a faiure because the animal died. Pretty circular logic. As stated above, if itll open and wreck havoc on a deer and then penetrate and kill a buff all in short order it seems pretty perfect to me. Yeah, aframes while not perfectly priced to some, are pretty perfect in performance for sure!
