I alluded to this as well. I agree with you that "something is up" if a .55" projectile is making the same wound as a .75" projectile. (expanded, rough estimate).

Also, the author claimed he could not tell whether a 9mm or a .45 was used on the deer or javelina, based on their reaction and the outcome.

However, he also says things that sound quite contrary to any BPW causing any TBI's.
