Yep, those "old" SX bullets perform quite well, dangit. lol
Years back, I closed the bolt on a Sako Vixen in 222 mag with a 50 grain SX in front of 26 grains of 4895 with the gun, pointed down of course, EXCEPT it was pointed at MY FOOT resting on a mound.
BANG!........ah CRAP. :eek:
Performed quite nicely. I had a hole roughly the size of a nickle with meat hanging out the bottom of my shoe.
TG I didnt "aim" better and hit MAJOR bones. Just tore the living heck outa the base of my two smaller toes.
I was younger, dumber.......two lessons learned.:(
light bulbDO NOT set a factory trigger less than 1.5 lbs and
light bulbDO NOT point anything loaded at ANYTHING living.......even by accident.
Unless of course you INTEND to shoot it.
Wasn't long range though....sorry. :p
