Just be careful trying to spin the maker too fast. This is the 168 for 1-10 twist. I fired it from my 1-7 blackout.

That’s pretty crazy. Never heard of a bullet opening up basically to its design shape without hitting anything as opposed to just blowing up. Really cool hole it made for sure.

It is. I’m just really glad I didn’t have the suppressor on when I was trying them out!! I shot 2-3 of them and this is the only one that hit on paper. I’m pretty sure this was right around 40 maybe 50 yards. I’d have to look at notes.

No kidding!

Left: 194 Lehigh @ 950, right: 200 Maker @950, center: 110 Barnes TAC-TX @ 2375 for comparison. These were all fired into rows of water filled milk jugs so not relevant to flesh, but it’s all I had available at the time. It appears that the LeHigh tumbled which bent back two of the petals. The thicker Maker petals do seem more resistant to this. I have taken one mid size doe with the Maker bullet last fall and was surprised at how quickly she went down.

What distance were the hits at?

I have been messing with subsonic loads with some bullets I have or could find. I've got a load of a 180grn 30-30 bullet over H110. I also have a load of 220grn Nosler partition and 215grn Missouri flat nosed cast bullets over AA1680. They are accurate, stable, and run good in my 10.5" AR pistol; looking forward to seeing what they do on pigs.

I would imagine that they will pencil right through without expanding.

Velocity from subsonic bullets does not change near like that of a supersonic. BC Has very little change on sub ballistics. Example: 190 sub-x starting at 1050...
Would you feel they would be good out to 100 yards, can't find any bc information for cutting edge to run a chart to see where velocity drops off

I think you’ll run out of accuracy/stability before you run out of velocity. JMO
