This forum was very educational! And I thought all this time my Federal Power Shok bullets were good enough! Looks like I'll be switching to premium bullets next fall! Likely, Federal TBT or Barnes Vor-Tx!

I love reading the results of these type of tests. I am always impressed with the amount of time and effort people put into these tests. Riflebuilder I have read through each post with intrigue . There is another impressive test done by a fellow named BCsteve on the canadiangunnutz forum that is also very informative and  your work here reminds me of his tests.

 

The one bullet that interests me that I have yet to see tested is the trophy bonded tip.  

 

here are some great links to some other tests for those who enjoy reading these types of things.

 

Lubrication test...very extensive and informative It made me change my gun oil after reading it and seeing the photo evidence.

AND  here is another bullet test with a lot of common bullets as well as some uncommon items.  It was what convinced me to use barnes for anything I intend to eat Page 19 has part 2 of his tests

Thanks Jeff ,  but that's a long drive for you to see a couch potato. lol  , needless to said , I am little behind on your reloading , I do have 50 cases annealed and trimmed, I found 7 cases that had cracked necks, and though them out , when I  filled the 50 case loading block up , hope the rest of the cases are not as bad . just give me a call some time .

Here are some pics of   Scirocco II  bullets in a number of calibers  From the Nosler  Forum .  As you can tell , I Am  very  impressed with the 180g  Scirocco II  bonded bullets, shot  from my 300 RUM . I have gotten a bear at 388 yards  , double lung shot , and it only went  15 yards  and my  4 point spike deer last year at 457 yards. high shoulder shot, it went straight down    . nice big exit holes in both animals ,  showed  good expansion and weight retention. will test the .257 100g  Scirocco II  from my 257 weatherby soon .

Google Chrome and Firefox have found a way to access the photos that Photobucket.com does not now allow you to post to 3rd party sites anymore without paying a high price.

"In the cases where former/current PhotoBucket users haven't deleted all their albums:


Chrome and Firefox now have an extension, Photobucket Embed Fix, that will display 3rd party hosted images. It will fix all your broken pics, no need for you to do anything, it runs entirely in the background.

Click Tools>Add-Ons (Or press CTL+Shift+A) >select Extensions > enter "photobucket embed" in the Search box (upper right corner) > then click the install button."

 

this does work, i tried it!

riflebuilder, if you cant get it...i will do it for you when i pop by next

ok

you can only view them using this

sorry

I finally got my 257 Weatherby I built   broke in on a animal , shot this little spike horn on Nov 5 ,  100g  Swift Scirocco II  bullet . 285 yards Vel 3494 . bullet completely penetrated  , exiting the thigh of the left leg . lungs were jello , and were the bullet entered the ribs , there was a hole  just a little smaller than my fist , like it expanded  as it hit the hide . the exit hole was just over 1/2" in size . 88 lbs of meat ,  was a fare amount of bloodshot , so  next time I will try the Barnes 100g TTSX  out , and see if it does less bloodshot. 100g  Swift Scirocco II  in my test , weight  was 71.9g
