There is no comparison whatsoever between an arrow with a sharp broadhead and a .40 pistol. Someone said the two use the same mechanics...crush and cut...uh no. If your arrow is crushing tissue, you need to learn how to sharpen the head. No bullet will cut anywhere near as well as a broadhead either.
eta...you really thing a bullet in the thigh will put a deer down any better? Shot placement counts, for every kind of projectile out there.
Thanks for the arrow info. I learned something.
