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.

Click on this bottom picture. It's the video of Brandon putting it into the jugs..

Looking good Scotty.
Nice to see some brown and green too.

I'd think that will work on a black bear, or a deer, or an elk, or...

I'm really impressed with the expansion Scotty. When I shot them from my .44 mag revolver, it didn't seem that they expanded much at all. That's with a mv of about 1200 fps though.

I know they can be accurate. Neat that they expand & hang together so well at .444 velocity!

I would imagine I am in the 2000FPS ballpark. The load is a creampuff to shoot Guy. I made the load using 42 grains of RL7, and wanted to keep it same, so Lori can shoot the rifle without getting beat up. It looks pretty good though, I imagine it'll work well on game as well. That is a tough bullet, very surprised it hung together like it did.

RL7 works great in these old straight cases, it's the shizzle in my 45/70 also.

You aren't kidding Heath. I love the stuff, great speed and accuracy has been very awesome in my 45-70 and the 444 Marlin. It works well from these light 250's in the 444 and the 470's in the 45-70..
