Doubletap 200 gr Nosler in .40 S&W
« on: May 20, 2014, 08:18:09 PM »
Check this out. Good velocity and expansion. Penetrations a little deep but a great load all the same.

Heck yeah! If I wasn't already a 10 guy I'd probably carry this or something like it. That's just 50 fps slower than most 180 grain .40.

Cool. Copy/paste from my post to the video:

Nice. Thank you for posting this test and thank you for using real gelatin in your tests rather than that clear gel junk. Gelatin is a little harder to work with but I believe the results are more accurate.

Maybe I missed the BB calibration figures but if you performed calibration I'd like to see the velocity and penetration of the calibration shot included. It would also be nice to have all the relevant figures (calibration, velocity, penetration, expansion, retained weight, etc.) all listed in one shot for later reference. Your videos are very informative and a much better overall quality than my own, so please don't take my criticism the wrong way.

As for the load tested, I'm not interested in buying anything from a company that lies about velocity figures but this is tempting. Good expansion AND deep penetration makes this ideal for woods defense.

On the video he said it was 1062 fps average and all shots were close to that.  Moving good for a 40 cal load.

Jacket separation made it expand to only 9mm width and thus over-penetrate. Woods load because of penetration? Only if it consistently loses its jacket exactly like that every time. I doubt it.

How is this good?
