I bet if you dropped your bullet wt and increased your speed MAGIC and bang flops would occur🥰
Shhh George or the secret will get out 😜🤪😇
In all seriousness backcountry it’s not just going fast it’s getting the bubble & shape-charge correct to get this outcome of a consistent bangflop or a reduced run @ a minimum but speed dosent concern the majority of hammers ( odd one the bubble goes to sideways & needs to be slowed to more modest velocity of 3k 101 bo as example )
Now I don’t know anything about the 169 & your likely shot ranges you normally hunt to or max range
What I do know is most people will do better by dropping a little weight to a lot on the average
The hard part is clearing our heads
You were in a pretty good velocity bracket @ impact & that’s a extended run no doubt
So what can we learn from this as these are the ones we do
Could we have a little more details to fill in the blanks please
I’m having trouble seeing the picture in enough detail as I am using my phone & I haven’t come to the realisation I actually need glasses yet lol
So moving forward
It looks like a narrower than usual wound from what I expect with hammers & looks more like a Barnes type wound ( I’m not picking on Barnes just classify all mushroom monos as Barnes type wounds but if I need to I can adjust & I’ll break down or generalise to stop problems occurring hopefully) but I’ve also seen these in the field with hammers & usually these type of wounds are more suited to bigger critters but when it’s a pill that contains a great bubble & shape change it dosent matter what size critter ( within reason ) you just watch the magic happen ( recent tests from my son that’s relayed to Steve & Brian ) showed some interesting things & the knowledge & the bar is getting lifted once again
Could you answer these please & anything else you think is important
So is the wound the same in ea Lung & are the lungs hit in the back half ?
Did it strike a rib on way in ? Where the pill started to open ?
Where the pill basically shed its petals ?
Size of exit ?
Did petals exit ?
On recent discussions with Steve & Brian I personally like the way they are heading now I won’t Divulge but it ties in here also I believe but it’s mainly in relation to the prototype
Sorry to be a pain & if you don’t know that’s fine I will just keep plugging away to settle my curiosity
