We use the alpha-7, like the one shot deal but it does leave a whelp most of the time. Big deal.

We use the Alpha-7 also, but if you shoot it right in front of the front leg, it wont leave a knot or whelp.
Neck shots seem to usually leave a knot of somekind.

I've noticed a 16ga needle will leave less whelps than an 18ga.
