Re: Terminal ballistics of Lapua Scenar?

My scenar experience on '3D' targets is limited to the following observation that I made a while back on a different thread:

Encouraged by the SMK reports that I read when I first discovered this board, I experimented by shooting an unopened tin of tomatoes at 200m with a 167 lapua scenar out of a 308.

Expected an explosion; nothing happened.

Thought I'd missed.

However, it was drilled dead centre

Next time I'm attacked by tinned tomatoes, scenars will not be my projectile of choice

Each to his own I guess

GG, i'm assuming that's a 300 smk and a 250 scenar shown in cross cut above and a 250 smk would be a shortened version of the 300? great pics.

i know a fellow that shot a few Pa. whitetails with a 33/300rum using 250 scenars this year. longest shot was only 600 but very good wound channels on each.
