I see Barnes offering a 35 Whelen with g. If these bullets of the same design are driven at the same speed the.

Sectional Density – All Important And Almost Ignored
It also shows why none of these varmint weight bullets, regardless of the velocity at which they can be driven, should ever be used to shoot deer and other medium size game animals. While a bullet that penetrates through-and-through tends to cause more profuse bleeding, allowing a game animal to be bloodtrailed more easily, in some applications, preventing exit from the rear of the target is more desirable. I am being "haunted" by the urges to do a. Not the same kind of energy transfer for frangible bullets just to clarify that bullet choice is important in this discussion. The individual lead balls then spread out in a wide pattern, and due to their low mass to surface area ratio, stop very quickly. It's just when you start talking about big bores when doing my research sectional density brought up much more than when talking smaller calibers.
Speed vs. Sectional Density
Page 1 of 3 1 2 3 Last Jump to page: Ethical hunters want as quick and humane a kill as possible, and death is ultimately caused in one of two ways:. Marine snipers who use accurized Mtype rifles are issued the Mk Mod 0 cartridge developed jointly by Black Hills Ammunition and Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center , using a bullet manufactured by Sierra Bullets that was cannelured according to military specifications for this project. So what I've observed is at close range it seems to me that a properly constructed bullet beeing propelled at speed with sufficient rotation imparts alot of energy very quickly into game.
