Good point(s) MD. While I don't try to take out both shoulders on a broadside shot, if I can hit one of them on an animal that's facing me or angling away, I've found that helps too.
I've seen deer class stuff go down pretty reliably with a lung shot that hits the rear lobes, but the bigger, tougher stuff does seem to have an amazing ability to go long distances in really mean country with such a hit. Even watched a Pronghorn hit through the rear lobes of the lungs try to get up a minute or two after going right down. It really pays to both shoot carefully and to make sure he's down for keeps. E

John,

Quit making sense and using personal experience in a logical way to back your opinions.

Greg,

Thanks!

It's always kind of odd to read really firm opinions based on limited experience and theory....

I like to refer to such as, "long on theory-short on substance"

A good friend of mine sometimes calls them "aggressive ignorance."

Has this work been published? I am a big fan of the 220gr Partition out of my .300 Win Mag.

As I recall Phil published the info in one of the Wolfe magazines.

Two writers, actually. In one of his books, Boddington also mentioned that he didn't think African game was any tougher than an elk.
