101 water filled milk jugs were blasted. That's all that would fit into the back of my short bed Chevy.  Valid or not, it was fun.  I got the idea from Cliff who does one or two occasionally.  I decided to spend the whole day doing it.

The following came from Cliff's info. The 25-06 Improved launched a 100
Barnes X at 3,600 and stopped in the sixth water jug. Its weight was 82
grains. From the same rifle shooting the same load into a five point bull
elk, the recovered bullet weighed 82 grains. It entered the left ham was

found in front of the right shoulder.  Talk about real world performance!  WOW!

Following are the results from Saturday, June 25, 2005 of the one gallon milk jugs filled with water.  We set up a new 2X6 on some 1X4 legs.  In front of that was the Oehler 33 and in front of that was yours truly.
 
.224 60 grain Solid Base at 3,120.  (.223)  In the forth jug.  Weighted 13 grains, just the base with a little lead. Took four shots to capture or find one.  And yet three shots at deer all exited. The funnest was a drop at the shot from 222 yards in the woods.  Entered at the top of the sternum and exited in front of the diaphragm.  I was about 100 feet above it.

.224 60 grain Nosler Partition at 3,118.  (.223)  In the forth jug.  Weighted 44 grains.

.224 60 grain Nosler Partition at 3,407.  (.22-250)  In the sixth jug, but damaged the skin of the seventh. Weighed 44 grains.  Notice 50% more penetration with about 10% more velocity.

.224 70 Spear 3,438 in the 3rd. Shot again. Same thing. Weighed about 12
grains in flat disc shape.  And yet these will go clear through a deer broadside.
Water is apparently hard when hit fast.


.308 180 Nosler Partition at 3,112.  (.300 Weatherby) punctured the skin in the back of the sixth.  Weight is 119 grains.

.308 150 Barnes X 3,458 in the sixth.  (.300 Weatherby) 112 grains.  This shows why lighter is catching on.  Same terminal performance with noticeably less recoil.

7MM 140 Nosler Partition 3,591.  (7STW) Out the back side of the fifth next one was in the sixth. 92 grains.

7MM 130 G.S.Custom 3,642 (7STW) in the sixth.  Notice this is after a .300 Weatherby.  And yet the down pressure of the "wound channel" broke one of the legs.  88 grains.  Put the 2X6 on some 4X4's on the ground.  Again we see the solid copper showing why lighter is catching on.

.454 Casull 260 Freedom Arms 1,925 out the side back of the eighth.  Shot again out the side back of ninth and damaged the side of the tenth.  First five jugs were destroyed.  I shot through a log to get a buck with this load.  Second funnest deer I can remember. 

.375 300 Nosler Partition (.375-.416 Rem) 2,925 in the seventh.   One weighed 232 the other 204.

.375 260 Nosler Partition 2,976 (.375-.416 Rem) in seventh weighed 190

.375 260 Nosler Acubond 2,982 (.375-.416 Rem) in the sixth weighed 160
 
Does God like G.S.Custom?
 
.375 265 G.S. Custom 3,044 (.375-.416 Rem) was next.  It went out the back side of the seventh. It was laying between the seventh and eighth and weighed 196.  Despite this one weighing less than the 300 Nosler, it broke the new Doug Fir 2X6 which was purchased for this project.  It produced a spectacular photo.  The jugs after the whiteness of the first few are all in a row with a little water squirting out their tops.  What makes it so fun is the 2X6 is gone! It was blasted downward by the water trying to get away from the "wound channel".

I busted a few gallon water jugs with 12 ga slugs on the last range.

Here you would just stop by the recycling trailer that sits in the Wal-Mart parking lot, and grab as many as you want. Then bring the pieces back when you are done LOL.

Not looking to start a pissing match here, but just want to point out that a lighter bullet is not the only thing at play here. Bullet design, and constructions are also different. If you don't believe me, Try firing a 200 gr. Barnes TTSX in front of a max load of H-1000, or retumbo vs. that 150 gr. Or maybe a A-Square 220 gr monolithic round nose.
 
Frontal diameter of an expanded bullet, and retained weight will have as much to do with pure penetration power as original weight, and velocity.
 
I've shot my custom solid copper 200gr. match bullet into water jugs at a mild 2800 fps, and penetrated through 6+ jugs.
 
Other than that, fun stuff. Awaiting pictures!

Sorry, boys, for the lack of photos.  John is too old to write anymore and won't let me have the photos till he writes the article.  I am convinced he is not going to write the article.  He still get's around by himself, except when I take him squirrel shooting.  I carry his shooting stand and rifle out to where ever he wants it and set it up for him.  At eighty-six he is still a pretty good shot.
