Re: Min. ft.lbs. for big game kill
As a side note:
The ACCUBOND as well as the TSX and TTSX bullets are rated to 1800 FPS for reliable expansion. The Ballistic tip is 1600. I have tested the 178 AMAX to 1150 FPS and have had expansion.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, 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.
