Fired from Marlin 444. velocity was a tad over 2200 fps for Hornady and just under 2200 fps for the Speer
The Hornady looks great and retained a lot of weight. expanded dia. .860"
The Speer looks good but lost more weight. Also found a bunch of fragments in the various jugs.
Both the Hornady and Speer ended up in the fifth jug
The CCI 22 round was just for fun
