Default Thor Ballistics?

This may have been posted before, but I asked Terry for some ballistics and this is what he says he gets with 120 gr BH 209:


These are approximations based on "0" 100 yards
yards muzzle 50 100 150 200 250 300

250 gr BT
vel 2200 2019 1849 1690 1545 1413 1294
drop -1.5 0.3 0 -2.79 -8.52 -17.72 -31.25
energy 2687 2263 1898 1586 1325 1109 930


yards muzzle 50 100 150 200 250 300

300 gr BT
vel 2030 1884 1747 1619 1501 1391 1292
drop -1.5 0.45 0 -3.25 -9.66 -19.86 -34.39
energy 2746 2365 2034 1747 1501 1289 1112

That is a pretty stout load (powder wise) but is interesting. I am not sure I could consistently shoot 120 gr without flinching!

Anyone done their own testing?

Now I see why the 300gr Thor was shooting dead on at 50yd and 100 yds. There's only 1/2" difference.

I love the Thors.

Look at the energy it retains. With the expansion the Barnes bullet has. No game is safe from me now.

Barnes web page with the .250 and .295 gr should be a good source of info also.Muley for possible long range shots with any bullet the heavier 300 gr is the way to go, both in BC and energy..there outstanding bullets! Ray

I would think the Barnes ballistics will be even flatter. Smaller bullet.
