Hope you're having a good argumentative day.
You are incorrect according to Dr. Martin Fackler President of The International Wound Ballistics Assc. and Duncan MacPhearson who has the only 100% accurate wound trauma ballistic model

Re: How much Energy to kill a Deer?

Excuse me JWP, but where does the article you posted conradict anything I said????

Can you please provide me with data to back up your claim that most energy from bullet impact is transformed into "thermal energy" and when you've answered that, then please explain what forces cause bullet deformation and temporary and permenat wound channels?

Thanks...

Re: How much Energy to kill a Deer?

JWP, let me help you out with an illustrative object lesson...

Lets take, say a 300 g SMK fired out of your 338 Lapua (a fine cartridge )

OK... Said bullet is traveling downrange toward a 1" steel plate targert 50 yds from muzzle. The bullet arrives at said targert with a velocity of 2690 fps and and energy of 4820 ftlbs. A fraction of a second later, said bullet is lying on terra firma with zero velocity and zero energy. Does the steel plate target show any signs of significant temp change? Is there any sign of scorched or melted metal? Just what happened to all that energy???? Clue.... look at the shape of the bullet lying on terra firma and the crater in the steel plate. I'm guessing that's where the energy went to....

Nahhh.... I'm not buying the book and not accepting your BS. You stated that I was wrong according to blankety blank and posted two pages from some book that basically said nothing. I have reasearched the net and the info and data, some of which i posted for you in the other thread back up what I say, or more correctly, that's where I get my info, that and a basic understanding of physics.

YOU made a statement.... YOU back it up... else it is BS....
