Or two exit holes :) From my experience 170 gr Hornady sometimes brakes to two or more pieces. I have observed this on few occasions on deer. Like in this picture I shot this buck quartering towards. Strangely one piece of bullet exited close to entrance hole and destroyed the shoulder. Other piece damaged the heart end exited on the other side and I found third piece inside the deer.

That's a pretty buck.

Interesting w the interlock, they aren't a bad bullet, but wow did it fall apart for you. Hit him in heavy part of shoulder?

I shot 2 does at 30 and 50 yds w 165 gr ftx bullet, just 1 in and 1 out. Wanting to see what it does at 200 yds.

I saw a little short barreled compact Savage Axis in 350L at Walmart the other day for a pretty cheap price. It kinda tempted me. Would make a great little pig rifle.
And that’s how I ended up with mine! Fits a need, kind of like a carbine as it relates to length. Have taken one deer and a couple hogs with it. Like the 150 grain round with it.

Shot him to the left side of his chest. I found fragments of the bullet on couple other occasions with exit hole present, but it always big chunk, not small pieces and some kind like this performance. Didn’t shoot anything past 100 yards yet.

Gotta say it is not what you'd expect from a 170 gr soft point at 2200 +/- fps. Should not fragment but you can't argue with the results.

I've also got a couple Fury bullets - 158 gr and 170 gr weights. Trying these cause they expand down to 1200 fps. Didn't want to worry about underperformance at say 250 yards - my rifle shoots great at 250.

The 350 150 gr Deer Season is more in the 2300-2350 FPS range and energy is closer to 1800. 300blk is a fun range gun but given the choice I’ll take the 350 all day for hunting.
