    please show me the error of mine that you "corrected."

    hint: you can't.

    This thread wasn't started here. This guy isn't a regular poster in this sub forum and almost all threads are very far from the squabbling shit show this thread became.

    I didn't correct any of your technical details, I corrected your atrocious behavior. If you act anything even remotely close in person as you do on the internet then I genuinely feel sorry for anyone that comes across you.

    That Hague Convention'll get you every time. Since we're on the subject of favorite calibers and the M885's short comings, let's talk 300 Blackout. I've been eyeballing the Lehigh defense ammo for quite some time. They claim it'll expand to a lot lower speed. The 194gr ME looks great for a home-defense AR pistol.

    BTW, I keep my 16" barreled AR loaded with .223 Winchester PDX 60grs... I don't think I'll be finding any volunteers wanting to test the terminal performance with these guys.

    Oops, looks like you got into a pissing match yourself 'Ashton'. See how easy it is to get into one when you get insulted. Don't like the thread, stay out. There are plenty of other threads you can read.

    Some .300 blk rounds have an awesomely low expansion threshold.

    Barnes 110gr tac-tx is around 1300-1400 fps.

    I'm not as knowledgeable on the Lehigh stuff but I do know some of their subsonic stuff does have ridiculously low thresholds. I've seen gel tests of the 194. It's pretty good. So like you said it will expand at a low speed but is also only going <1100 fps from the muzzle. Even still it expands great and has deep penetration.


    The 110 ttsx and 194 me do seem to penetrate a lot if that is a concern.


    For .223/5.56 from the research I've done the rounds I really like are:

    Worried about over penetration

    Hornady 75gr Tap T2
    [​IMG]

    Hornady 62gr tap barrier
    [​IMG]

    Not worried about over penetration(also have great performance vs barriers/windshields)

    Speer 64gr gold dot

    Barnes 50gr TSX

    Gel tests was lost to 3rd party hosting photobucket bs but it looked similar to speers

    i'm much more active/reactive in person. i get so much more to work with, via expressions/demeanor/etc.

    and you didn't correct shit, obviously. your 'behavior' appears to be even worse than mine - at least i had logic, facts, and actual corrections on my side. you're just flagrant with no objectivity and now a boatload of hypocrisy.

    toodles.

    and lehigh seems to make some good bullets. the underwood/lehigh monstrosities seem to be incredible.

    My favorite pistol for back packing and hunting Alaska (as a side arm, especially bow hunting ) is the 454 casul Alaskan. It's relatively light and agile for its power. With 360gr Buffalo Bore hard cast it has incredible penetration. Picked one up after getting tangled up last year with a sow with cubs and only having a glock 20.

    Not my video.
