Pretty expansion, but I also would like to know where it came from. If an animal, how big, how far did it penetrate? Inquiring minds want to know.

im gonna guess this was recovered from a target trap er such. i havnt ever had one stay inside a deer, always a pass through. we are dbl lungers here though, i would think that a shoulder shot would create more of a deformity?
