Default Thor 160g Hollowpoint





Jonathan (MountainDevil54) provided this Thor 45 caliber 160 grain Hollow Point Bullet. The bullet came with sabot.










The distance between the rifle and horse is 25 yard. The powder charge is 80 grain Blackhorn.














The bullet blew up the front two jugs, went through the third jug, and was caught by the fourth jug. The bullet is visible in the fourth jug; the jug still full of water. The shooter thinks, WHUUT?? How did the bullet get in there?









There is a hole into the fourth jug; the sagging plastic plugged the hole, and kept the water. When the jug was moved, it began losing water; seen in the next photo.

Awesome! The bullets with the small slits are the control fracture thors.

Just hit me... I could use these for my bear hunt since I have a rifle season tag but plan on using my sidelock!

Would not be my choice of bullet if the gun shoots 300 grain XTP's well. What is the rate of twist on that sidelock Devil?

Sure can't argue with that.

Considering what the BC is going to be I would guess the effective range would be about the same as a PRB.
