52gr bergers, splat factor for p dogs?

Anybody tried any 22cal 52gr bergers at 4000 fps for p-dogs?

Re: 52gr bergers, splat factor for p dogs?

I have not tried them at 4000fps
but i have tried them at 3400fps on rabbits,
they were a bit dissapointing, the killed them ok but very little expantion,
i think its due to not enough body mass for the bullet to expand in before it passes through.

The exit holes were only about 1" cretainly nothing like a 50 Vmax or 52 Amax

If you run them at 4000 you might find they expand better ??

Thanks for the info. I expected as much, but that is what I have and am having a hard time finding anything else....so I guess I will just hope the added velocity will explodem.
