    looks like at 2000fps all of them are pretty good. For a 45/70 any of them would work well. But if your gonna make me choose I'd go for a Barnsy

    As a tree hugging liberal you know which one I want. Cant have all that lead hurting the critters just laying out in the woods. What if a gofer ate it :shock:

    I use the Trophy Bonded-Third from left in my .270 and I can't believe I am saying this but I like it better than the Nosler in my .270.Great bullet and might try it in the .300.

    Yep, I have to go with the Hornady. Expanded quite nicely and held together. Made a big wound channel. Couple of others are close. Parley
    'am that man. Matt Dillon United States Marshall. The first man they look for and the last they want to meet.

    The new Core-lock Ultra.

    Which of these would you choose for your hunt?

    They all look nice at 2000fps, but if launched at 3000fps, my calculator says that equates to a minimum of 430 yards (Speer TB @ .357 B.C.) to 660 yards (Barnes TSX @ .552 B.C.). Even 430 is a very log ways for me, 80 yards longer than any shot I have ever taken except on varmints.

    When I look at the 3000fps results, I consider the Hornady IB, Norma Oryx and Remington Cor-Lokt Ultra to be grossly over-expanded with very low Sectional Density as a result. I have different pictures of what may be the same test (Jamison, Shooting Times, October, 2002) that clearly shows the Scirocco at 3000fps is in the same boat - no shank left. Its hard to tell from the picture how much shank the Nosler Accubond has left.

    The Shooting Times article did not test the Interbond, Accubond or Trophy Bonded. Of the bullets tested the A-Frame had the highest weight retention at 91%, followed by the Failsafe and X bullets. The X and Failsafe bullets had the greatest penetration, followed by the Partition.

    What does it all mean? Just this - if I want to recover beautifullly expanded bullets, I just need to slow them down or shoot game at 600 yards.




    [Edited to add Cor-Lokt to list of grossly over-expanded bullets. Jayco slipped the pic in while I was writing the original response above.]

    Forgot to answer the main question, which one would I choose?

    If muzzle velocities were 3000fps, I'd have to go with the TSX, Trophy Bonded or A-Frame.

    As it turns out, I've already made the decision to try the 180g TSX in my new .300WM, as well as the 180g North Forks. The North Forks are built like the Trophy Bonded but with a series of grooves in the shank, kind of like the TSX but with more grooves.

    At .308 velocities, the Scirocco looks like it would be dang near perfect for what I want in expansion and weight retention.
