    Anybody tried any 22cal 52gr bergers at 4000 fps for p-dogs?

    I have not tried them at 4000fps
    but i have tried them at 3400fps on rabbits,
    they were a bit dissapointing, the killed them ok but very little expantion,
    i think its due to not enough body mass for the bullet to expand in before it passes through.

    The exit holes were only about 1" cretainly nothing like a 50 Vmax or 52 Amax

    If you run them at 4000 you might find they expand better ??

    Thanks for the info. I expected as much, but that is what I have and am having a hard time finding anything else....so I guess I will just hope the added velocity will explodem.
