Flower identification

Post by fd57 » 04 Aug 2013, 17:43

Anyone up for "Name That Bullet!"?

Don't really care about the caliber, looking for bullet name/manufacturer. Understanding that more than one company may use "Bullet B".

^^^ That's HST. Note the missing prongs on the end of the copper jacket.

Barnes TAC-XP bullet. Could be from DoubleTap, Corbon, or the likes. It would not be from Barnes, as their own loadings have a black coating on the bullet

It appears to look like it came from a standard Speer loading. Generally when loaded in other manufacturers (Underwood) there's going to be pretty extreme penetration.

I haven't seen the black coating on their 180gr .41magnum bullets, Buffman. I'll upload some snaps soon to show you. What caliber or which calibers have you seen the black coating on?

The three on the left half already been ID'd, but how about the the two on the right :)
They will be an immediate ID if you've ever stumbled across them before:

I think the difference is the TAC-XPD vs. VOR-TX ammo. Their personal defense ammo has the black coating applied while the handgun hunting ammo does not.

I would still rather have the HSTs. they will expand like that in soft tissue. Lehighs don't always. Still pretty cool design to get that type of expansion in water.

Grizzly Xtreme has copper rounds like that. Or does Grizzly get them from Lehigh Defense?
