Those 250 XTP's are known for grenading at close range at velocities above 2000 fps. I witnessed it happening to a friend last year when we were on a depredation hunt. Most likely, the wound on the shoulder is the jacket exploding and part of the core continued on thru. A lot of muzzleloaders like the 250xtp.
BTW, 76gr of 4198 is a toasty load.

I cut a 1" sapling into at 15 or so yards and the 325ftx at 2250fps continued 75 yards or so to hit where I was aiming with a complete pass-thru.

The bullet hit the leg bone dead center and it exploded, the only thing holding the rt. frt. leg on was hide.

hit a small branch 1 foot before striking a deer once before. Two 3 inch holes on each side. It struck the heart and blew it to pieces. The deer ran about 50 yards down a hill. It looked like someone took a 5 gallon bucket of blood and threw it down the hill.
