    The bullet (208 great Amax) is actually longer than the case, my first time seeing a combo like this.

    Looks great. How do you like your results at the range?

    Just use a sling shot. That big of a bullet with no powder behind it is just a waste. Won't penetrate or expand with the trajectory of a bowling ball. What's the point/application??

    Please stop using my favorite 300 Win mag bullet. They are hard enough to find to just waste them for that.

    That is something differant.
    Are you using ballistic tips for looks?

    With a round traveling subsonic is it necessary to accurize the round.
    Or is their lack of core lock style rounds available.

    They shoot surprisingly well for subs. My first accuracy testing at 50 yard's I ha 4 out of 5 touching, the 5th was less then half inch away. 100 yards 1.5" group.

    Sorry but much more fun than a sling shot, especially after I get my suppressor. I will choose bullets based on price availability and accuracy. My survival ammo stash will be lighter higher velocity Ballistic tips, the subs are just for fun, unless I can find a decent expanding sub bullet that doesn't break the bank.

    It was the cheapest bullet I could find and the only bullet I've tried sub yet except for some 185 gr bergers I had on hand but that was just an experiment too spendy for my use in blackout.

    I cant wait to get out of Ca and get a suppressor for my Marlin 1895 45-70, I cast and reload my own. A suppressed subsonic 535gr projectile would be Awesome!
