Bullet weight retention

That big sow i shot on friday, i recovered my bullet from it. Started out as a 62 grn. Fusion. After passing through the front of the shoulder, hitting ribs, through vitals and the exit in the ribs just behind opposite shoulder. it lodged right under the skin. shot distance was right at 150 yds. My recovered bullet weight was @56.8 grns. mangeled pretty good , but held together well. what do y'all think on the weight retention?

American by birth, Southern by the grace of God.

I'd say that's pretty good.

I think Federal would be proud

You have something like 90% of the bullet staying together that was flying fast at impact. I would not think the engineers would be disappointed...
