Reply To: Second Blood for the TX200 (12 FPE)
The run off was probably due to shot placement and not the energy. Im guessing that shot hit with about 17 fpe? Thats plenty for a clean kill with a heart and lung hit. Since the leg was broken it sounds like the shot may have been to far forward or the pellet deflected which isnt impossible. The shot in this thread made full penetration and stopped under the hide. If that same shot hit the leg bone and didnt deflect I would be surprised if it didnt penetrate both lungs. But the bottom line is take the shot you are comfortable with and put it where it needs to be. So if you are worried about the possible penetration dont take it.
