Anyone Shooting the 69gr HPBT-Match

Looking for some field results on these. Shooting them out of my AR15 and wanted to know how they do on fur. Trying to use the bigger (pill) to reach out a bit.

Let me know if you have anything for me.

Thanks

AND HERE WE GO FOR ANOTHER LONG SEASON OF CALLING!!!!!

Re: Anyone Shooting the 69gr HPBT-Match

A friend and I shot 2 pups with this bullet two weekends ago. The first one was hit in the guts at about 200 yards and it completely disemboweled him. You could have put a football into the exit wound. It was simply killer and terribly destructive performance.

The second pup was shot around 150 yards in the neck and it dropped him right where he stood. There was no visible exit wound in the offside hide but when we cut his ears off there was massive amounts of internal damage all the way into his brain.

I'm not sure why the shot in the guts split him wide open and the shot through the neck produced no visible exit wound but that's my limited experience with the bullet.

I just ordered 200 of these to try out. I've been shooting a 55gr Vmax for the past 4 years. I'm going to give the 69's a try in my 1:9 twist. I expect them to do pretty well.

I have used them very effectively out of an ar for coyotes. I have never shot smaller dogs but on the adults the damage to pelts has been very minimal. Very good at putting the coyote down right where you hit them.

Sounds good. Hope to get out and try them on some fur myself. First batch didnt shoot very well out of my AR. Was trying Varget but will have to try something else.

I have had good luck with 748. Meters like a champ too.


From what I have seen the 69 grainers work fairly well. As with any bullet, the can blow a good sized hole if you hit bone. Only killed two coyotes with them. Both were DRT.
