    165 gr.FTX

    this round shouldn't have expanded at all under these conditions but I did get a little expansion before the block flattened it according to the jacket that I found in the second jug, at a little over 500 ft-lbs of KE it is a hard hitting round too, look at the ripples in the impact area on the helmet, it went through 2.5 gallons of water and hit the block hard enough to rock it.
    I really like the Hornady FTX

    Looks like it would have hurt!
    I would rather die on my feet, than to live on my knees.
