Still, a lot of people like high velocity and feel that their rounds perform better with a little extra speed. Like the soft point, at close ranges, penetration can be shallow, but adequate for game weighing up to 150kg. I have no idea where the 3000 fps 168 gr load came from. You know all about your puchase and where it is until it reaches your front door, then they e-mail to make sure you recieved it. The 150gr Elite is advertised as being ideally suited to both light and heavy, soft skinned game. Life has a way of limiting our options. No misses that I can recall.
The kinetic energy carried by lighter bullets minimizes internal tissue destruction. Again, sectional density is only a part of a much larger equation that goes into stopping power. Some people like a little extra velocity out of the muzzle, especially long-range shooters, and there are. They are used for a lot of the same shooting and hunting applications but these two cartridges are not interchangeable. And as we mentioned before, there are. All of these categories including the categories outside of ballistics all go hand in hand and influence each other.
For large and even dangerous game this is an excellent round. . These heavier bullets provide more penetration and stopping power that is always appreciated when taking down large game. But I have always enjoyed the writing of those who have. Elk are typically the main game for hunters who carry rifles chambered in.
We should also note that we used the same gun weight for all ten rounds. One big criticism of the. There is a definite difference between the. If you want a round that is going to remain supersonic, both the. Roger Duford As an Alberta, Canada resident I can tell you there is no such thing as Canadian regulations on caliber size other than you must be above. And one final issue that we want to bring up is the barrel length.
The entry level Hotcor is a fast killer on light game although at ranges under 100 yards, like most 150gr. So I choose the 300 Win for everything. The sort of shot or shots that live in the eyes of the beholders forever! In fact every single powder listed went over 2800 fps. The Accubond bullet design gives you deep penetration on large game with controlled expansion to provide a lot of damage. From this, you learn things.
This bullet does its best work at impact velocities of 2600fps and above inside 250 yards , continuing to produce wide, fast bleeding wounds at 2400fps but with sometimes delayed killing with performance tapering off at 2200fps. The Scirocco does have a tendency to over expand at closer ranges when used on tough game due to the vast amounts of energy transferred upon impact and cannot be expected to penetrate vitals on game the size of elk with raking shots. But a bullet of conventional construction will wreak bloodshot meat from neck to knees on an antelope. The momentum of the bullet is another indicator of penetration, and it goes hand in hand with the sectional density and is the topic of the next section. The new heavier Mk248Mod1 is a more recent development designed specifically for longer range engagements out to 1500+ meters. In theory, short magnums, which have a wider powder column, burn more uniformly and cleanly which should provide more accuracy, though the significance of this can be argued and is not the subject of debate in this particular article. I think that was his intention.
When we look at the trajectory, we still did not see a lot of difference between these two cartridges. For big game hunting, the Hornady 200gr Precision Hunter is a great choice. The biggest difference between these two cartridges is not the ballistics, but in the rifle platforms they can be used. Understanding this allows you to take the necessary steps when calculating shot placement. Many outfitters have strong preferences in calibers. With that, in this set of ten rounds, the flattest round was a. In the table below, you will find the sectional density data from the larger data set.
Nobody makes a factory round with those ballistics. And yes I have hundreds of chronograph and ballistics tests to prove it. Showed it to them , let them have fun with the scope. If it gives you the performance, you want a few extra dollars a box is not going to be an issue. At 200 yards the figures are 2636 fps and 2314 ft. Before getting into the specifics, if we just look at the graph, several points of discussion come up.
