I shot 100gr Nosler ballistic tips out of my 25SST at 3570fps out of a box of 100 all stayed together but one. Ran them up to 3800 and they held together. It’s a rock creek slight gain twist 1-7.25-1-7.12 I shot 100lb hog facing me with one. Entrance was in the shoulder about 2.5-3” hole, exit was out the stomach, was just about volley ball sized.What are you guys finding with using the lighter bullets in the faster twist barrels ? For example say the 115 berger in a 7.5 twist barrel at 3200+ fps. Churns up some rpms so curious about jacket failure
I’ve ran 67gr sledge hammers up to 4300fps and they held together. A friend and my self shot various cartridges at milk jugs from about 75yds the other day. The 67gr had the most violet impact easily. It’s the only time I’ve ever seen a milk jug separate in half right down the middle. The biggest cartridge shot was my 30Sherman Mag. The 67gr hit was high center since the gun wasn’t zeroed for that bullet but still split the jug down the middle and separated it into 2 main pieces We shot a jug with a 90gr absolute hammer as well at 3780.
Initially it seems light solids for caliber are good to go in fast twist at least with hammers. My 25SST has a high round count and the 67gr Sh’s are still staying together. But as always results from barrel to barrel may vary. Different Bbl makers will have different bore dimensions as well as some rifling types being harder on jackets
