I'm in the process (still) of pulling parts together for a 25sst build to shoot 131gr Blackjacks. I thought it would be great to start a photo board for people to post their recent (or old) 131 Blackjack kills. I know there are individual posts out there, but hopefully we can get a collection here.....I don't think there is another thread already for this.

Please also describe you gun, cartridge, range, bullet performance, etc.

I’m in. I had a new barrel put on a Ruger MKII in 257AI. Will be working up a load and hopefully killing a few things with it. Soon as I have more to contribute I will.

Well a little late to the game but finally got to test these bullets out for myself this season. 1 doe at 550 yards and a second doe at 535, both dropped. The first doe after 10 mins managed to get back up, made it 10’ and expired. Second doe never even flinched.

Tagging in. Just finished load development on my 25-284. Matt are those tips opened or stock? Heard some guys were opening the tips.

I haven’t opened a tip yet. I figured try it first as I’ve heard they work without, and I have heard some people prefer to open for coyotes (thinner skinned) but will try this season.
