Re: Will a 338 225 gr accubond open at 1700fps?
I've done a lot of bullet testing including Noslers and I can guarantee you that short of a metal gong, they won't open at 1100'. I quit using them at really long range because they wouldn,t open at 1800'. I shot a 5 point bull at 1025 yards with a 300 RUM shooting a 200 gr. AB out of a 30" barrel with a mv of 3350'. I recovered the bullet from a quartering shot and all it did was rub off the ballistic tip and a little of the nose with virtually NO expansion. It was at that time about 6 years ago that I started making my own long range stuff...Rich
