PoweRBall is not a prefrag.
It\'s a jhp with a plastic nose-ball in the hp cavity, that\'s all. Maybe YOU \"think\" that the 1000 ft lbs of a 10mm RBCD is \"feeble\", but it\'s TWICE as effective as was the 44-40 lfp that \"won the west\", or the .30 Carbine which so many VERY battle hardened vets preferred (over the Thompson or the Garand) when those guns used ball ammo. The ball bullet or lfp wastes at LEAST 1/3rd of its power on overpenetration.
\"Placement\" of a bullet, in a fight, is mostly bs. If you COULD reliably hit the heart, you could also hit the brain, same sized target. The brai- is 10x as likely to get the instant stop that you need as is the heart-hit.
230 gr jhp\'s rarely expand much in flesh.
Anybody can prove that to themselves, on animals. 4\" and shorter barrels practically guarantee than non-plus P 230 gr jhp\'s wont expand in flesh. They will only be going 750-800 fps, and that just aint fast enough.
usually, that\'s the case, but it doesn\'t HAVE
to be. It\'s why I designed the spliit nose prefrag. A cast bullet,made out of non-lead solder, which weighs about 105 grs as it drops out of the .45 swc mold (Lee 155 gr) Then it\'s hollowbased to 75 grs (in a lathe, using an aluminum collet-mandrel so that the bullet isn\'t distorted) and the hollowpt and deepening and widening of the grease groove makes it weigh 70 grs. It has to be sized .453\", just to keep it in the barrel long enough to get it to 2300 fps, in the Rowland case and a Commander barrel. It will achieve 2200 fps in a 5\" .45 ACP barrel (fully supported) The charge in the Rowland case is 13.5-14.0 grs of Bullseye (depending upon the barrel, In the .45 ACP case,it\'s 12.0 grs of Bullseye. 8 grs wont even cycle the slide of a Govt modle, using a 20 lb recoil spring. So no, 12 grsis not a lot, not with this bullet. have to use the Lee Sizing tool, and Lee bullet lube, case the solid tin bullet is too hard to be sized in normal lube-sizer tool.
The nose of the bullet is slit, with a .008\" wide slitting tool, in a horizontal lathe, almost back to the grease groove.
At these high v impacts, the Split Nose breaks into 3 segments at the grease groove. The rear segment is a deep penetrating, nose-heavy, full wadcutter shape. You get 3 wound channels, with overlapping temporary caviities ripping up the tissues in between them.
No, 230 gr Gold dots don\'t expand in flesh, at 800 fps. What they do in jello is IRRELEVANT. Go shoot some animals, you\'ll see that I am correct. Quit just SWALLOWING the bs claims of the ammo and bullet makers.
