375 scores again

Yesterday I took a quick hunting after the work week and got a nice doe.

If I remember correctly someone was waiting for the aftermath pics of deer vs. 375H&H?

It works beatifully with even smaller game like deer. Results are similar with copper bullets as with 30 cal. Only bigger.
I used Slovenian company’s ”Fox Bullet”. 250 grain made out of copper and zinc.

Worked like a charm.

No bloodshot or anything. Just big, clean, ragged hole. Deer jumped in the air and collapsed.

    I have no problem with a big exit hole, that does not seem excessive, how did the internal organs in the area fare? I would assume a lot of liquid in the chest cavity.

    Nothing special. Lungs were totally busted. Like a bigger proportions to damage compared to 30 cal copper bullets. 
    Nothing spectacular but very impressive looking damage. Like someone had poked through with big iron bar.

    Hmmm, my ".375" is a 38-55, still have not shot it yet, NIB holds me back, your results look good for sure.
