Re: New 220 Nosler BT' Range Report... Problems.

A lot of people have had trouble with them. First thing I would do is physically check twist rate of the barrel. Then start at 10 yards to check stability, then you will know if it's ever stable. http://www.300blktalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=101041 Thanks dellet, this is what I am looking f...

Re: New 220 Nosler BT' Range Report... Problems.

My guess would be. - - -> bullets rotational velocity . . . ? No . . . Really . . . It could be that the nose profile is slowing them down more than anticipated out past the chrono. What is the B.C. of these bullets ?? Rough and/or dirty bore could be another thing I suppose. --- pruhdlr The bullet...

Re: 220 grain expanding subsonic Bullets are back

I have used both the 220SMK and 220gn expanding Blackoutbullets. The load I settled on for a 12.5" barrel was; 11.9gns of ADI2207 (Hogdon's rebadges this powder in the USA as 4198) OAL 54mm 1,013fps For the 220SMK is; 11.1gns of 2207 OAL 55.5mm 1,020fps To be honest I have not noticed any difference...

Re: Target fps for subsonic hunting loads?

No offence Dellet, but I find these online arguments with high-post count members tedious. This is not a knowledge competition and nor do I care about perceived forum status. I am responding to the OP who is wanting to know something I am familiar with and am not interested in arguing my experience....

Re: Target fps for subsonic hunting loads?

They kill by crush trail only. There's no temporary wound cavity and kinetic shock. The bullet rarely comes apart and if it does don't expect it to have much effect on the animal. Maybe you should take look at these. http://www.makerbullets.com/proddetail.php?prod=308200SBLK Maybe, but I doubt this...

Re: Target fps for subsonic hunting loads?

^^Thank you both for the great info, I should have mentioned this is for a bolt rifle, using W231 powder as it's the fastest I have on hand. Bullet flight noise will be determined more by bullet shape than anything else. The 168 Lehigh will probably be in the running as one of the loudest. What oth...

Re: Target fps for subsonic hunting loads?

The supersonic crack builds from 90fps below the speed of sound to its loudest 150fps above the speed of sound. This is why commercial loads aim for around 1,010fps. Below the '90fps below the speed of sound' threshold there is no supersonic sound signature so you may as well load up to as close to ...
