I propose that we as a group come up with a way to make a comprehensive bullet terminal performance test to act as a resource for long range hunting of big game. The goal, as I see it would be to show strengths and weaknesses of different bullets in different weights and different velocities in 3 to 5 popular calibers to include 6mm, 7mm, 30 cal, 338 cal and 375 cal. Bullets of different makes and different weights would be shot into some sort of controlled ballistic medium (not water) and results recorded. With this information we could conclude if certain bullets are up to the task of dispatching big game with predictable results. One of the conclusions I would like to see is penetration based on caliber and bullet weight. In other words, how much weight in a given caliber with a given bullet will achieve desired penetration and expansion. One thing that could be learned from this test is that a bullet of a certain brand might work extremely well in one caliber and might over expand in a larger caliber. By making these tests at high velocity and also at say 1800 fps we could come up with a good resource. The best way to make this test happen is if someone would volunteer to do the testing and we as a group could send supplies or funds to help with the testing.
