The other theory on pelts is use a light fast explosive bullet that enters pinhole and blows up totally within, no exit wound. But if it does exit its gonna be nasty.

Often times one must remember that destruction on smaller animals is more from speed than other things. IE a heavy slow bullet will punch through. A light fast blows up. But a light bullet going slow may just poke through also.

Especially true shooting turkey with rifle. Speed, even with a FMJ, will destroy a lot of meat if not hit in that bobbing, constantly moving head....
