Default 300blk zero

Anybody have ballistics on Fiocchi 300 blackout 220 grain subs? Iím zeroed at 50 right now and want to try them out on pigs. May end up at a different feeder that is 115 yard shot so Iím trying to figure that out. No time for another range trip and at least on the phone I canít find a ballistic chart on that ammo.

I know, donít bother hunting with subs. Itís the ammo I have right now and I do head shots anyway. Was in the wind at the range this morning and tearing on big hole in the target suppressed at 50.

Gonna be real tough to shoot at a target that small without knowing an exact range and the ballistics of your gun and ammo. Look atet eh above chart. 5" of drop from 100-120.

If itís tearing big holes in the target at 50 you are not stabilizing those bullets.

Iím surprised you havenít had a baffle strike yet. Consider yourself lucky if you havenít.

I read it as one big hole as in point of impacts were touching.

The way it's written makes it hard to tell if he is having bullets tumbling or not. Hopefully not. But a BIG hole. Might be a bad thing.

Yes, that is what I meant. I actually started shooting with 150gr supers trying to zero a new 1-4 scope. Don't recall what brand that was but they were not doing well. Ran out of those and put the subs in. Was shocked at how well they were grouping.

Default 300blk zero

So funny story. Hogs came out at my blind where the shot is 115 yards. Had my trusty 556 and got a click. (Freedom Vmax ammo). Round was stuck too so I creeped back to the truck and retrieved the 300blk loaded with the subs. Held over about 8Ē and ear holed this little boar on the first shot.
