Great about the ball ammo. Similarly, I once Texas heart-shot a coyote so cleanly you couldn't see the entrance wound, and the bullet came out his mouth! 6mm Remington, 100 grain SP at about 50 yards.

The pelt buyers paid me a premium for a non-shot hide (him being HUGE also helped). That plus a $25 farmer/rancher bounty of the time netted me a total of $80 minus one cartridge for that 'yote! It was around 1975 or so.
