250 gr. 45 caliber Hornady Flextip

Postby claimbuster » Sun May 23, 2010 4:37 pm

After going almost all the way through two small TX pigs, here is what is left of the 250 gr. Hornady Flextip. Bullet completely passed through one small pig and then went almost all the way through the second hanging up in the hide on the exit side.

Recovered bullet weighed in at 186.5 gr. Load is 35.8 gr. Lil Gun, WSR primer.

Rifle was a Bushmaster AR.

BTW, both pigs are in a friend's freezer.

Awesome! I wonder how much of the bullet weight lost is the polymer tip? Has anyone weighed it? Nice shooting CB!

The tips from the 200 and 250 FTX' weigh 3 grains and the tip from the more stubby 225 FTX weights 2.5 grains.
