JimmyEG1: Can temporary wound cavity kill you like the one shown here?
Horatio Caine: how big was the gel cube?
dadajack: This round is VERY impressive for accuracy. I can get 12" groups at 500 yards with my Ruger American, and it's a $350 polymer gun with a $200 Nikon 3x9 on top. Definitely not a hunting round, but I have some really accurate factory loads that my rifle likes too. But the SMK 168 is an awesome projectile for long range duty. I need to try the 175 when I start reloading.
Sableagle: Could you do this one again with a 24x8x8 block rather than the standard block, please? I'm really curious about how the bullet behaves after it's gone through the first infected ... or rioter, or whatever ... and how big a hole it makes when it isn't that close to all the edges.
bigbenff1: I shot a deer with them last year at about 80 yards...it ran about 10 yards and dropped. the bullet did pass clear through the deer though.
Philonius Dung: And technically, the US did destroy the USSR. We outspent them, pure and simple. Is there any better example of capitalism defeating communism than that? Even if we were to call Korea and Vietnam a loss in the way you said, those were battles in a greater global conflict (hell, there are folks who posit that the Cold War was really a third world war, and that the GWOT is a fourth). We may have "lost" those battles, but we certainly won the (Cold) War.
Philonius Dung: I definitely wouldn't call a war that hasn't really ended a loss. Not to mention the fact that South Korea in 1950 was economically where Somalia is today. Today SK is, what, the 6th largest economy in the world. Korea wasn't really winnable in a total defeat of North Korea. China would not stand a capitalist nation on it's border, basically. The story would have been similar in Vietnam if not for the degradation on the home front, and for the really amorphous objective in country.
John Venters: and what about the 107 gr in 243 win? what range would they stop fragmenting at?
i would like a target load but also as i am a profecional hunter i dont want to be jugling amunition and on my wage i cannot afford a separate gun just now.
supercomp65: Any chance on doing some berger hunting vld tests in the future?
jessfest7: I'd like to request that you also test the Federal .308win 165gr Sierra GameKing to compare with this video if possible. Thank you.
Brass Fetcher: They don't expand .. only fragment when the bullet tumbles. If you are using a 308WIN, please keep the range to 300m or closer ... beyond that they don't fragment.
ezelong: Forgive me for asking...but did it expand as designed? I know it's a match round but I have a truck load of them and have thought about deer hunting with them.
bartofilms: I'd like to see the same test, but w. the Jell-O @ 200yds, where your game is more likely to be. Who shoots a boar @ 10 feet? If he's that close you'd better be good at climbing trees. :P.
HuntHardFishHard: @ brass fetcher y'all should do double tap shots at the 20% ballistic gelatin . To see the reactions.
NJallDAY6O9: The USA pretty much lost Korea & Vietnam, honestly. To be fair they wern't officially wars, but when you send a bunch of troops into a country specifically to fight I call that war. Don't get my message wrong I love my country, best country in the world but we did loose Korea & Vietnam. We did not stop parts of Korea & Vietnam becoming and/or staying communist. That was the fight, against communism. America failed it didn't destroy communism, communism just destroys itself. God Bless America!
Rob Rosenberger: Like the others, I just can't thank you enough for doing a vid on my favorite .308 match round!
Mrcn99: I can only imagine what this round does with stomach.
cnknguyen: Moral of the story folks? DONT GET SHOT WITH A 308!
Brass Fetcher: Keep in mind this is 20% gelatin .. a standard that came along a long time before the FBI standard with 12" + penetration in 10% gelatin.
Jeremiah Johnson: Thanks for the vid. I have been waiting for this load to be tested.
Was the block shorter than normal? What was your BB calibration?
EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
