Here is what the 250 Sierra looks like shot into jugs. Went through 6 jugs and was found on the ground. It retained about 196.2 grains, so I think it did very well. Very impressive as it is probably moving around 2000-2100 out of my 444 Marlin. Anyhow, here are the pictures.


I re-ran this test...

Using Scotty's Gun, and rounds he loaded but I got slightly different results. I ONLY got 5 jugs and it retained 217.0 grains. It must have been the hard water here. :lol:

OH! forgot to mention, the frontal diameter is .837 !! Wow

Definitely spreading the frontal aspect of that bullet! Still, quite a smack down with that load.

That would be good on a blackie. Or a whitetail in the woods.

Man, it seems consistent, that is for sure!

That would make a heckuva good hole in a buck or a bear.. Hopefully Dano can slip one into a SC deer for us shortly.

Out of one of the 44 mag lever guns would get it out of the barrel at 1500+
