Re: .308 SMK Report on Texas White Tail
[ QUOTE ]
Do SMK expand on the easy side since they are HPs or on the difficult sise? In other words, do they under-pentetrate as a result of opening up quickly or over-penetrate and punch tiny holes as a result of not expanding?
I;m simply curious as to which extreme they fall closest to.

Well it depends on what weight for cal you use and velocity. A 168gr MK out of a 300RUM at 80yds is going to fragment to pieces. On the other hand a 240gr MK out of the same gun at 800yds is going to penetrate quite a bit.
Sorry you had a bad expierence, but several hundred kills and going, not once has there been a "bullet failure".
