Re: Guess the projectile??

Is that a pygmy deer? Hit by an F350?

    150VLD is my guess;

    But I secretly hope it was something smaller like a .243 or .257 pill, less than 120 grains. I always like to see the surprise on someone's face when they are reminded that smaller bores are still very effective.

    I'll figure out the impact velocity and energy this morning then post what hit it but so far no one is close!

    50 grain V-max

    We'll guess low, then high bracketing the actual then narrow it down.

    Should become the longest thread on the forum.

    That looks a lot like some of the results I used to get from 150gr Ballistic Tips, both in the 7mag and the 06, it's why I stopped using them.

Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
