The King's musket barks again

Not a frontier six-shooter for sure. My Pedersoli Bess barked today. 60 yards, 100 gr. 2F, .715 ball wrapped in a .015 ticking patch lubed with TOW mink oil. It was one of Elmer's classic "raking" shots. Entering behind the ribs and after blasting through the liver and lung it shattered the upper leg bone on the offside and exited. The scraggly buck hit the ground, got up and piled up again about a 100 feet away.
