Now that I can get consistent media density from shot to shot and hopefully contain the media, we'll see.

I shoot the SMK first though, as I don't think with its seemingly tougher jacket the shock will be spread over a larger distance. Who knows? Surely not me at this point.

Roy, I think that the Rubber belting will be more than enough to open up a 300 SMK. I would go prepared to see similar results.

AWESOME! I noticed in a couple of the hits in the Send It 1 & 2 where you could see the shock wave on the impact side of the game of about 2-3". I thought I was seeing things but after seeing the damage to that substantial bullet catcher I am in awe of the kinetic energy exchange of this caliber/round!
Thank you so much for the work and show 'n tell!
