The second part of that, most of those big expandable blade brodheads will do the job, the first part, not so much.
Yeah I hate expandables.

I like to assume I'm going to hit the animal in the vitals and lack of penetration is the only problem I'll have if I do that. If I'm hitting deer in the guts thats my problem not the broadhead.
