If you keep impact velocities below 2900 fps, you won't have a problem with the BT's. Heck, even at 2400 fps, they will open up beautifully with pencil size entrance, complete passthru, and quarter sized exit holes.... if that's what you are looking for.

All bullets have their design limitations...take the TSX, for example.... under 2200 fps and it often won't even open up. Above 3200 fps and it'll shed petals faster than a dried out rose in a tornado. All for double to triple the cost of a ballistic tip and generally worse precision to boot.

Pick the bullet to use based on the MV of the cartridge it'll be propelled from, as there is no 'magic bullet' out there capable of perfect expansion yet maintaining integrity from 1800fps to 3800 fps... just not possible.

Megalo..,
Never heard that theory, but makes sense. That's for the info. I just read other websites with reports of huge exits and thought to myself those were not for me.

Thanks, Still learning, and open minded,
