If it did go that way - then that extra hole in the jug above the bullet path MAY have been caused by a pellet to be coming off - so maybe it is traveling fast enough.

Actully I turned the jug to take the picture. It was a bad shot as I grazed the left side of the jug. I didn't get an entry exit shot just the edge of the jug

Look at this picture... if I have the entrance hole in the right place... then I think the bullet may have worked internally. It was just lacking a lot umph! at the target because of the lower velocity.

Also remember when shooting a Lehigh/Bloodline - you will not get the large exit hole as you do with a mushrooming bullet. Once the bullet looses it's petals it just because a sharp edged turning cutting, hydrostatic pressure causing Kieth Nose Conical....

That's an awesome hunt and a darn fine shot. Can't wait till my son gets to take one with the crossbow. Hoping to have that happen this year.....want him to get bitten by the bug early.
