The 5x35SMc really vaporizes stuff! This is a video of 22lr 60gr aguila sss (901fps) and 30gr bullet @ a mv of 4,534 fps hitting the same orange @ 100yds.

That's impressive!! What exactly is a 5x35SMc? Never heard of it

Do you happen to know what the parent case is? .204 Ruger?

6mm BR is what the Wiki page says. I met this guy at the local range once. His cartridges are very interesting and efficient but seem to lack commercial success due to difficulty in manufacturing the brass and his larger calibers require bigger than average actions/bolt faces than normal cartridges of the same caliber.

Sorry I must have read over that. Regardless, seems like a pretty neat round. Thanks for posting

Well any skepticism I had over the "4500 fps" claim were demolished along with the orange... ha ha

That would be some serious Red Mist on prairie rats...

Hey so what's the difference between the 5 x 35 SMc and a "20 BR" ?
