Re: In the Ear? Really???

exits... interesting topic. sometimes they pass thru but not usually. however, 140gr amax in 6.5 creedmoor usually always pass through. i would think a lighter and faster bullet would exit less often than the 168 gr in 308.

when i first started shooting the creedmoor i thought the exit holes were due to the bullet slowing down and not expanding at the extended ranges i was shooting at. however, the 308s must be traveling pretty slow from the ar10, and they usually don't make it through. guess the slow bullet and bigger diameter is the reason??? when an amax does make it out, it's usually a mess.

here are some pics without exits...



and with exits...

Re: In the Ear? Really???

not really a good comparison for me to make. most of the hogs shot with the ar10 are running and i'm just lucky to hit them anywhere. the creedmoor is a custom bolt action. pretty easy to hit anything within 300 yards in the head. here are some old pics posted in another thread, but you get the idea...



beyond 500 yards, depending on conditions, i'll go for a body shot. it's still pretty devestating. notice the exit hole.
