I have shot 200gr silvertips, 200gr hornady spire points, 200gr rem cl psp, 220gr Speers, 225gr partitions, and 225gr sierra BT through my gun and all end up in a sand back stop.
I tend to dig them out from time to time and all seem to expand fine to one degree or another all are stopped in the first 4-8 " of sand and all seen more abrassion than if they actual hit an animal.
Here is the weird part only the sierra's stopped expanding at the o-give and shed their core's the cores are very intact and their jackets are say 75% as long as they started out. Why such odd perfromance from a known lightly jacketed bullet that does work on game? Velocities were from 2320-2400fps.
