I shot a couple Speer 300 grain Jacket soft point "Plinkers" out of the 444 into the jugs today. Lost the first as is it skirted out the side of jug #5. I caught the second in the bottom of #6. It weighed 251.2 for a retained weight of 83.7%> It expanded to 0.899. The load is 45.0 Grains of RL-7.

I'm unclear on the "Plinker" designation Speer has on the box. It appears to me that they are bonded? I plan to hunt a white tail with this gun this year and I think this is the bullet I will use. Do they look bonded to you??

I think it will create a heck of a hole coming out of a whitetail. !!

Although I like the 300 XTP in the trip 4 this will stay together better.

Yes, Fotis, that is the one.
My Chrono recently died.. QL predicted 2100 and change as best as I can recall. 45.0 grains of RL7.

They are shooting around 1.25 - 1.5" groups at 100 yards .. I didn't measure them. Was just trying to get my zero correct.

Awesome performance Dano. That's a hitter of a bullet right there. Talk about making a good sized leak hole!

Fotis, Scotty is WRONG for a change... I did shoot the 64 BSB, but those holes were some 40g BT's.
I mounted a different scope on my .223 and was just getting it zeroed back.

That's a 40 BT next to the 300 Speer Dano?

I'm wrong all the time, just ask my kids!
