Default .308 vs Skull

Hey fellows, I got a question.

You fellows think that a .308 round could blast through large game skull?

Say if it was a grizzly or bison....

Certain angle it might not. If the game was facing you, the bullet would strike a very hard, sharply angled surface. May crack it but not penetrate.

Obviously depends a lot on distance but a direct hit under 100 yds on any North American game animal is going to punch a hole in the skull, we're not talking steel plate for crying out loud!
