Actually, yes.

Rifle - Ruger 77/44
Ammo - Hornady LeverEvolution 44mag 225gr.

First deer I shot was broadside at 65 yards. I hit him high shoulder and he still ran 70 yards before he fell. When I skinned him I found the bullet jacket under the skin on the opposite side in front of the hip.

Second deer I shot 4 times all in the shoulder area before he would go down. First shot about 85 yards, second 30 yards, third 20 yards, fourth 30 yards.

I've heard of people having less than pleasing results with the LeverEvolution ammo, and now I can personally say that I have as well.
