Default 290 TEZ Empties Nut Jug

The forecast blizzard didn't arrive yet. Seemed like one should get out, and have some fun. Loaded 20 Lane' Tube with 133g of BH209, printed targets, filled nut jug with water, and headed for the hills. The main objective today was to see how the 300g Deep Curl would shoot, pushed by 133g of BH--not so good it turned out. Happened to have some 290 TEZ in the bag, so they were given a shot; they shot pretty good. It seemed one could hit something using them TEZ.

A 290g TEZ emptied the jug quickly, and this VIDEO shows how it transpired.

The Mountaineer was up to the task of shooting the Barnes, 133g BH, crush rib sabot, and W209 primer; it was quite comfortable and pleasant to shoot.









That bullet really smucked the nut jug good; here is a screen shot of the impact 0.133 seconds after the bullet arrived.

Nice shooting. I hope Mr. Planter never sees that. He bring charges because that nut was a salted...

The camera makes 30 frames per second. Is how to find the range.

YEP! If you expect us to do math, you're a nut.

I thought 120 grains of Blackhorn was the maximum load in a 150 grain magnum rifle?
