Thread: Ideal speed range?

  1. #1

    Question Ideal speed range?

    What do you consider the ideal speed range for standard lead core bullets? Ideal for proper expansion and not fragmenting. I'm getting my .348, 200 gr. Hornady's to right at 2600 fps and I'm thinking that it should be close for optimum bullet efficiency, but since I've not taken any animals with it yet, I can only speculate, but the original factory loading was close to that and it worked just fine.
    If you like getting kicked by a mule...then you'll "love" shooting my .458.

    Some regular lead core bullets are better than others, but I consider 2800 to be about max impact on the tougher ones. Depend on materials and construction, it drops from there. Just my 2cents
