That could be Riley but don't think so. He is getting 4" exits and this is consistent with the other yote he took at very long range. I would think there will be bullet fragments. I know my antelope at 1285 there were but that was at a higher velocity. I just think they are opening as I know what it looks like behind the hollow point. Large void on the 215's.

Hey 308 win, what do you think? Any fragments near the exit?

Re: 1275 coyote with the old with 215 bergers

I am sure that the bullet expanded on your speed goat because impact velocity was 1600 something right? And ive seen a couple pics of a sectioned 215 and yes that is a huge void. But at 1250 fps i doubt it. A sideways bullet will leave a disportionate to size/caliber wound channel. Also Jeff i will see if i can convince my Dad to make a trip out to your neck of the woods to do some shooting if you dont mind . I think i need a little help with my form, follow through, and breathing.

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Riley, just wondering what you base this statement on as far as first hand data. Have you been able to reproduce a tumbling bullet? Do you have any wound channel or exit pics from tumbling bullets on game? Was the tumbling bullet indeed a Berger? I have shot quite a few Bergers and never captured a tumbling bullet or have never actually been able to prove any did indeed tumble. I have only found this theory to be what some people "think happened" on the net. I would love to see some actual real world field results. The only pics I have seen was a none expanded bullet that was bent some and some suggested it could have tumbled. But the complaints from the shooter was small wound channel. This is why I wonder how you know this?

Thanks!

Jeff

Re: 1275 coyote with the old with 215 bergers

hey first yes on the first yote i took at 1107 i did find many fragments inside the dog when i opened him up there is no doubt in my mind that the bullet was more or less blowing apart even at that low of speeds the second yote at 1275 i only found two little chunks of copper about 1/8 inch wide and 1/4 inch long mabie smaller but enough to confirm that the bullet is expanding for my set up i am shooting a rem 700 action trued bolt badger recoil lug 22.85" shillen select match barrel with 1/10 twist sniper central 45moa steel base and badger rings with a weaver 3-15x50 emdr with 100 moa adjustment but it is a mil/mil scope i have a true 31.2 mils of adjustment with a 200 yard zero i actually have 30.4 mils of actual adjustment setting on top the 45moa rail to the person who asked if i when i got back from taliban land i arived back stateside on the 4th i am pushing the 215 bergers in winchester once fired brass over 47 gr of reloder 17 with stupid accuracy at all distances also i have pushed these little guys with the same load through my bone stock 700 sps tactical with a little bushnell elite 3200 10x40 with suprizing results for a stock rifle i have shot 8 inch groups at 965 with no wind in the stock rifle
