Do the new Brass bullets from SSK work?
« on: June 07, 2023, 10:34:10 AM »
We do not need to wait for my water testing trip.  Grouse recently made a trip to SSK (his recent post) and as part of his trip he and Gordo of SSK did the water testing for all of us.

They set 5 jugs of water on a plank approximately 100 yards down range.  The first 3 jugs were white 1 gallon jugs and the 2 rear grey were 5 gallon jugs.  Thankfully, Grouse took some pictures of the testing.  I have created a page that shows this testing.  He was shooting the bullet at near 2000fps.

The picture shows that the bullet's Controlled Fracturing did work and did do the damage I would have expected.

Nice.
I really appreciate your reports.
Any damage to the 2nd jug?

Do you see this as a deer bullet?
I'm assuming not something you'd use for elk?

I wonder how many people will touch their nose to their screen trying to read this...

Yes, there was damage to second jug, sufficient enough to blow it off ad onto the ground. I think it was ruptured but Grouse did not take any close up pictures of it.

I believe this bullet is and will be an excellent bullet for harvesting deer.  I am not totally sold on elk at this point until I can evalute it in a deer harvest. But it darn well could be a very good elk bullet.

I really wish I had the skills to do that but I don't.  These are being built by an old friend in PA.

Nice looking results.  Did they happen to get a weight on the bullet core after it was recovered?

No, they did not get a weight measurement.  But from the past I know it is a very small loss.
