    Double D My Rifle is a Rem 700 with 26 1/4"BBL with 1 in 10 twist.52grs of H4350 produces 3,600 fps.Behind a Hornady 87gr V-Max.Seated to touching the lands.This load is right at the redline on my rifle.54grs produces 3750fps.However also produces "Flyers".Whats the point of all the velocity if you can't hit the target?So far I havn't done anything with this rifle a 243 couldn't do.This rifle/caliber combo is "picky"When the BBL is shot out ,uncertian if I'll replace it with same caliber.

    Nothing wrong. The bullet worked as designed. All varmint bullets are supposed to break up soon after hitting the critter. The small exit hole is because there was only small pieces to exit. Surprised anything exited.

    If you want the reverse, then use a conventional softpoint at elevated velocities. Amax or Ballistic tip (hunting variety) would work well.
