Awesome! What is your twist rate?I just developed a load for the 90gr TGKs in an extremely slow 6 Creed. It is a Proof Carbon barrel and it is extremely picky. There are more bullets it doesn't like than it does. I did get the 90TGKs to shoot relatively easily in this picky barrel. Shot out to 793 and the BC seemed to be true.
It seems like they would work. I say this because I used to shoot the 105 amax in a 10 twist 243 and they worked fine at 1000Y.Cool. Well I'm a little unsure about using these in a 1:10 twist but I'm going to give it a try. I've seen several mixed reviews on these as to whether they'll work in a 10 twist or not. I've got a factory 243 Win in tikka t3x (10 twist) I'm going to give them a try in. I'll let you all know if they work. If not I'll probably be going with the Berger 95 grain classic hunters or the 90 grain ELD-X which according to Hornady is being "run" right now so I expect to see them for sale in the next several weeks. I typically default to Hornady bullets on my rifles and have one rifle I shoot Bergers, but these just seem like a great option for a 243 assuming they'll stabilize. I can't get over the BC but then again that may inhibit my ability to shoot them in this rifle.
Probably the TMK if it has a thinner jacket and will probably disintegrate faster in such a small animal. Of course you will have to test both and report back on your findings.The 90 grain 6mm bullet for the 25 cent price and a .490 bc seems like a slam dunk in a 6mm br. The 95 tmk bullet is 7cents more and has a bc of .5. Hmm I wonder which one would blow up a prairie dog better?
Well, not a fair evaluation as the bullet took a turn up into the spine and blew spine completely in half. Found the chunk of lead in off side shoulder just under hide. A lot of small pieces I wasn’t able to gather. Looks like when it hit spine it handgrenaded in all that bone. Anyways, here is what I was able to find.Interested to see that bullet.
This one did quite a bit better, still went through a lot on bone. Bullet went in nose through cartilage through bone on bottom of skull and down into neck. Stayed intact and performed awesome. Retained about 62% of weight.So basically exactly like every game king Ive recovered does lol
