Re: Ballistic tip fails

Jeff,

Failure there was and the ballistic tip involved ,
Jeff was the problem, now problem absolved .


Jeff, just pointing out that bullets don't " fail " . They perform according to the engineers model. The failure is on our part. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Yup! , we be the culprit [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] When someone uses a bullet for any purpose it is that individuals responsibility to match the bullet " to the application " , .....................cuz , the bullet can't do that [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

WOW!! That was diplomatic!! I can tell you like to shoot things between the eyes. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

How true you are though. Bullets (generaly speaking) dont fail. When you try and exceed their limitations they become unpredictable. The 150 BT perfoms great out of a 308 win or 30-06 or even the 300 Win mag IF NOT driven fast.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: Ballistic tip fails

I shoot the 200 AB. I think that is the ideal wt. for the RUM. A 180 would be my second choice.

The question isn't what or who's to blame, it's what is to be done now. All of the above advice is sound. Bump up your bullet wt. The 150 Btip is a good bullet for the .308.

Re: Ballistic tip fails

I'll have to agree w/everyone else. Ditch the light bullets and pick up something 200 + grains for the RUM. No point in burning all that powder unless your pushing alot of lead!!!!

Re: Ballistic tip fails

To post a picture of your deer you need an intermediate host such as Hunt 101. Set yourself up a membership for free Hunt 101

Upload your picture to that site from your computer. It must be in jpeg not bmp. It must not be too big or else you will need to crop and other tricks.

Once you get that far the rest is pretty easy.

On this site there are instructions but mostly what you should do is to start a post or reply. Below the text box that you type in you will find the "instant graemlins" and "instant UBB codes" on the first line of UBB codes is "image". Left click on it and a image link box will appear.

Now then open up a new window and go to Hunt 101 and bring your picture up. In the boxes at the bottom of the picture is a box that says "Image link" . Copy that and then come back here and paste it in the image box from this site. Do not get 2 HTTPs or it will screw up.

Here is a picture of my deer [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Didn't run very far. Easy to carry out and very tasty.
