155 Lapua Scenar field test result

From looking at the internal picture of the 155 308 bullet, with it's frontal cavity almost void of lead, I thought I might be able to use it on games. But field test makes me thinks otherwise. Just look at these pictures:

Here's what it did on my steel target at 535 yards (impact energy roughly around 1433 ft/lbs). At this distance the 168 Nosler Comp just smear the paint with lead.



And here's the result on a half gallon jug full of water at 591 yards (impact energy around 1323 ft/lbs)

Entry hole:


Exit hole. As you can see, the bullet just penciled thru'.

Looks like the results I have seen from our experiments as well. Very bad game bullets but they make great holes in your buddy's gongs!

GG, I did read your post regarding the result of your experiments on the Scenars. I was hoping that the 155 grain, 308 bullet might be different. Well, I guess not. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
