So a while back I decided I wanted to start running a supersonic .300 Blackout for taking coyotes. Been curious to see what the round will do to a yote compared to my .223 or 22-250 that usually end up making a complete gory mess when they’re shot through COM.
So Friday I finally took the .300 out instead of the .223 or 22-250. Well, the coyotes got the best of me, but I happened upon a very nice large Jackrabbit that presented a perfect opportunity to test terminal ballistics on.
Here were the results: (Hopefully I’m not in violation of any forum rules by posting this)
125 grain Hornady American Gunner HP at 82 yards entered just right of the spine at an oblique angle. Bullet did not exit. Left one nickel size entry hole and left all the rest of the critter intact. Absolutely surprised the heck out of me. Figured I’d blow the thing into ribbons, but ended up with a very usable pelt and meat (if I wanted it). Kept the pelt.
Looks to me like this may be a good fur friendly round…(if my coyote results end up the same) oh, and the Jack was DRT, no flipping, flopping or other acrobatics.
