Re: TNT VS Vmax? for ground hogs

It was a factory Mod 12 Low Pro with a 1:10 twist 26" heavy stainless barrel. 47.5grns RL15, CCI200 primers, 2.773 OAL. I'm guessing it was around 3100+fps. I did never get a chance to chrono them that I can remember. My grouping measured center to center .233".

The same barrel is now rechambered to a 300WSM. It was a .308 winny.

    Liked the 110 Vmax but in our country the wind blows.....
    Have a Rem VLS 1-12 twist have shot the 175gr with great results
    but shooting the 110 and wind did not wotk well went to the 155gr
    Amax and wow the Chucks voted it out, have had great with it on
    varmints out past 600yds and they are very effective.........

    The TNT is vary accurate and explosive under 400y, but the 110 vmax has much better ballistics. Problem is, can't use the heavy bullets due to over penatration issues and ricochet issues

    we do a lot of hunting near farms and houses. We need light bullets that disintergreat on impact
