Scirocco II / Bullet Jackets

I had two post on here one asking about the Scirocco II and the other about bullet jackets being shot in a 5 gallon bucket full of sand.Well the Scirocco II shot great in my 6mm Dasher and the Jackets. Well here my findings.
95G Berger was 21.7G after the bucket shot.
85G Speer Hotcor 15g
90G Scirocco II was 63G.
I know shooting in a bucket of sand is not like shooting in a deer but it was easy and simple to do.Just was wanting to share my findings.

    Thnx for the info Anthony. I recently got a Win70 HVB in .243Win that I wanted to try the Scirocco II's in. That bucket of sand is a pretty tough test for any jacketed bullet, whether bonded or not. I think the retained weight when used in ballistic gel (and thus flesh) is supposedly about 80%, which would be a bit better than what you're seeing. JohnnyK.
