The muzzleloader has a faster speed than the S&W500. The damage to the deer with the 295 gr. bullet I shot was not in excess and very little meat was damaged. If I use a cast bullet in the S&W500 the entrance hole and exit hole will almost be the same. The cast bullets from Cast Performance are very hard bullets and expand very little. I shot a Boar with my 44MAG with 300 gr. Cast Performance bullets and the bullet passed through the right rib cage, heart and out the left shoulder. The exit wound was just a little bigger than entrance hole. I have seen a 30-06 do a lot of damage to a deer, but good shot placement will do little damage to the main meat anyways. Any deer round and different bullet style shot in a shoulder will cause excessive damage. Not just a S&W500. Just my humble opinion.
