I will add that this is a tough, Michigan deer. 12 gauge slugs are known to bounce off the hide of these deer. They are not 10mm proof though. :-P
Good job Kegs. Good shot. Good bullet performance. Good clean kill. Very nice report.

I might have missed it, but did you recover the bullet?

I agree with you that I would have expected a large shallow wound track rather than what you experienced.
