congrats , you should get some sleep
my vmax 300blk shouldn't have been that much faster maybe 2300 but they just blew up in everything shot with them never an exit wound
glad it is working for you.
the 110 hornady soft points worked better for me but they just finally came back in stock last week
I am trying a 150gr Deer season xp round this year it is another polymer tipped bullet that is supposed to be for deer , I shoot the 300 so little I figured components being what they are lately I would try a box 2 of factory ammo and see
They get 18 to 23 inches of penetration from what I have seen. I have had some exit some have not. I recovered one that shattered the shoulder clipped the lungs and heard went through the diagram and liver and was laying on top of the stomach when I opened it up. Now there was not much left of it, no jacket just some lead flattened out almost like it had hit a steel plate. It did it's job.
My 12 year old shot 2 down in KY with it 3 years ago on the same day facing him. The first a young one folded hit top of heart one lung and snaped the spine. The 2nd was a large doe and her heart was split nearly clean in half the bullet continued up and at a slight angle hitting the back of one lung going through the diafram and out just behind the liver . She made it 30 yards. We were on the ground in aground bind and they were coming up hill slightly.
It's a balancing act with the blackout speed and bullet preformance . I error non the side of more expansion and possibly not an exit vs getting an exit and maybe not any expansion. I may be wrong in that but it's worked with 100% recovery so far. My cousin had the same set up he built right after I did and went with heavier bullets. He lost one or two and recovered one bullet from a nice buck shot facing him in the back leg. The deer dropped but the bullet had rifling marks and could have been loaded again and shot.
I think 110- 130 soft points would be a good choice especially with longer barrel on the heavier ones.
I was going to try Speer hot core 130s becuse they were cheap but worried they may not expand as well as I wanted and never did.
