    Bullet Dissections- what I’ve done and what I haven’t, so far.

    As many of you likely know, bullet construction and terminal ballistics is a bit of a fascinating subject to me, and I’d consider it a passion. Several years ago, I started doing my own research on this stuff, and did a few bullet dissections and recorded the construction and composition of...

    Sierra TMK vs TGK (GameChanger)

    I just wanted to make a separate thread to go along with other one I made about the ELDM vs the ELDX, but regarding the differences between the Sierra TGK and the TMK. The TGK is actually a completely redesigned bullet from Sierra and it's like nothing else they've made before. It has the...

    My thoughts on solid copper bullets and in comparison to other bullet types.

    To continue the theme of bullet construction/composition from my post yesterday, I wanted to make a separate post regarding homogenous (solid/monolithic/etc) bullets. I was also asked to share this multiple times. These types of bullets were originally made to fill a simple role and purpose...
