Holy Cow! A Football!!

What the heck were you using, to my way of thinking only Hollow Headed, Pistol Bullets, of the 230-185gr could possibly do all that?

Normally we have very little tissue destruction and way less destruction, that normally accompanies any 30cal..

This caliber/cartridge combo is NOT known for such damage. That kind of destruction is usually reserved to the 30cal family of cartridges, but then again, anomalies will occur, as you so well have shown, Wow!!
