Re: Lost River Ballistic Tech Bullets

I would not use a J40 ror hunting because it is a target bullet and does not expand. I would leave that up to the J36. Unless you want super long range accuracy and don't care if it expands.

I will shoot with the 220 grain J40, but I'm going to hunt with the J36. You guys should look at their website and read up on them.

Re: Lost River Ballistic Tech Bullets

Who told you that they don't expand, that was the whole point of the J36 to begin with is to expand at close to super long ranges. I used those J40's the other day and my dad made multiple shots though the same hole. When i tried it my shots looked like that of a shot gun because I let the barrel get too hot. I have yet to try them again.

Re: Lost River Ballistic Tech Bullets

NH: here is a very informative link to terminal performance of hunting bullets http://www.mindspring.com/~ulfhere/b...ds.html#solids

the author emphasizes to shoot the solids at low speed to prevent shearing of the petals.
Something that defeits my purpose of choosing them over N Partitions for instance.
The wound channel is depicted as very narrow as virtually no expansion takes place,even worse when the petals are off.
I am not sure how these graphs compare to wound channels in live meat,as cavitation is supposed to cause a lot of action-I said supposed to.I ead of a very dissatisfied shot on Saeeds forum

NH: here is the copied note from actual experience at saeeds forum:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was shooting a LRT 140grn out of my 280AI at 3150fps. I shot a mule deer at 340 yards, in the chest. The bullet went completely through the length of the deer and exited above the tail. The deer was still standing, so I put another round threw the lungs which put him down but not dead. Dressing the deer out, it was apparent that the bullets did not expand. Maybe I did not have enough velocity. To bad, this bullet was the most accurate bullet I have ever fired in this gun and was so flat shooting it compared to a 300 magnum.
