Here is a perfect example of shooting at a deer too far away!
The shooting starts at frame 11:40
Recovery starts at 15:50
At "100 yards" six rounds were fired at this running deer, When the deer was finally found it had one hit in the lungs by a single pellet and three pellets in the paunch and hind quarter. From my point of view, that was simply a lucky hit at a range beyond any reasonable certainty of placing a lethal pattern on target.
If the six rounds fired were of the commonly used 15 pellet 00B variety, then a total of 90 pellets were fired at that deer!
