I had this happen once during spring gobbler.
37yd shot, no brush or other obstructions, I ran up and he was standing there like a statue, multiple bleeding hits in head/neck
This was the first gobbler after switching to the 20ga and Federal HVWT #7 shot, I had been a "hard sell" to change from lead #4 shot and wasn't impressed at all.
Called Federal, they had me send that box back to them, they replaced it with 2 boxes and never had a problem since then with any HVWT shells, it flat out stones them and I am sold on it and also TSS for killing turkeys.
weird stuff happens when you hunt
