OK, got them all cut up and put away! I got less pics than I thought and a few were a little ugly for small children or the weak stomached. First pic is a pic of the the rifles used, front to back are a Savage 12 22-250 shooting 60gr Bergers at 3500fps, next is a Model 70 with a fresh Pac-Nor in 6.5 Sherman with 140 Bergers at 3130fps, the back one is not quite finished but it's a Savage 110 with a Brux in 338 RUM shooting 300gr Berger OTM's.
Exit hole from a 300gr Berger at 300yrds, I held low and back trying to stay away from the shoulders and avoid any undo carnage. Entrance was a pin hole but the exit was unreal and I'm glad I held back, the heart was completely gone lungs a mess, the diaphragm was spit and the paunch was hanging out of the exit and the liver was split even though the entrance hole and exit were both well in front of the diaphragm. I was trying to see if they would even expand, I was expecting them to pencil through or barely get open, not the case!!! I've never seen anything like it then again it's the first time I've used a 300gr bullet and it's the first kill for a rifle I built, need to finish it now.
Entrance of a 6.5 140 Berger, blew the liver and messed up the lungs. I'm thinking we'll be building more 6.5 Shermans, it's a tack driver and just plain sweet shooting!
Exit of 140 Berger, bullet performance was as expected, flawless performance with a pin hole in and a whole lot of messed up parts in the middle. The exit was rather large, about 2.5in but the way it blows out there isn't that much meat loss.
Front shoulder of a doe that was chosen for close range, high velocity Berger testing. She took a 60gr Berger bullet from a 22-250 starting out at 3500fps at 192 yrds right in the front shoulder, bullet pin holed in and hit the bone and shattered it and then blew a 3in hole through the rib cage then shredded the upper 2/3 of the heart completely removing it. No splash wound, weird!
