Hi Guys. (This is probably in the wrong place or thread)
anyone throw any light on this one, .22 WMR bullet expansion
Out on a removal at the moment three in the bag
first one 40 yds. A runner. H&L shot placement Round In and out
second one 50 odd yards A runner. H&L shot placement Round in and out
third one 96 yds (rangefinder) Absolutely kaputt dropped to the shot. H&L shot placement round stayed just in
my wire retrieved foxes one and two 25 yds and approx 40 yds from shot placement in thick undergrowth, keeps him happy, but not good to have 2/3 rds running off.
just examined the three shot placements and they are within an inch of each other, all the foxes are about the same stamp, not stressed or aware of me being close by
Hornady 30 Grn BT I'm having a job to believe they perform as well as they say, it seems (I've had a few runners) close up ones, the round appears it doesn't like to expand at close quarters but over 60 yds perfect.
anyone else found any similar characteristics, I love the round, so does the rifle, sub three quarters of an inch a 100 inherently accurate, best of a bunch I've tried, rifle is a sako quad varmint.
I think I shall be going to pin the close ones now to hopefully enforce expansion ?
be interested to hear if anyone has found a similar situation
