High enough on the thick part of the scapula and at 60 yards. All that expansion likely didnt leave enough velocity to exit the hide. I generally judge a bullet by the damage and not the exit. That deer will cover 60 yards in a few seconds. Imho its not
Far. Good bullet

Do you think if the bullet weighed any less would it have traveled as far as it did???

That is more expansion and less penetration than I would have expected. The result was correct though. Jen collected her trophy with one shot.
