As I understand it from Dr Roberts yes but with a much larger temp stretch and larger path.
Thanks for the reply. If you do ever test a 6.8 FMJ load, can you post it here?DocGKR said:Actually, we have never shot a 6.8 mm FMJ load--none are currently in service.
I was basing that off of what you had shown other FMJS do when they do not frag. Wouldn't a larger diameter bullet create a larger permanent wound path given no fragmentation or expansion from either. Upsetting the larger, longer, heavier bullet wound create a larger wound path than a shorter, smaller, lighter bullet again assuming no significant expansion nor fragmentating.DocGKR said:Actually, we have never shot a 6.8 mm FMJ load--none are currently in service.
So you don't expect it would fragment?DocGKR said:I suspect a 6.8 mm FMJ will be somewhat like a 7.62x39mm lead core FMJ.
