    Could this be the safest bullet for night shooting foxes?



    anyone tried these yet?
    could be the safest thing out there if the penetrate enough to kill foxes?

    Very possibly!

    have a look at the ballistic gel test hen compare it to even the standard BT which completely penetrates.

    My shooting bud says he hasn't come across a bad Nosler bullet yet!,So I reckon on these being as good as, or better than, their 40 grain Nosler BT (.224)...... not had a through & through with them from 40 yards out to 300, These new ones from Nosler look like a similar offering such as the Barnes Varmint Grenade I would reckon.

    what are they filled with if not lead?
    would a less dense core lead to a larger bullet and lower BC?

    A less dense core would mean that the bullet would need to be longer for the same weight. But BC depends on so many variables, notably tip and base profile. These will be longer because of the less dense core, but increase in length is mitigated slightly by the flat base. The flat base would serve to reduce BC compared to a boat-tail bullet, but the flat base often gives exceptional accuracy at short/medium range as it is faster to stabilise in flight (given an appropriate barrel twist). The ballistic tip nose profile is relatively aerodynamic, so all in all I would expect these to offer very good accuracy potential.

    Anyone tried them?

    This may sound a bit grim but I an curious to see the damage on a fox with one of these things.
