hornady 30gr v-max report [graphic]

Not really graphic but some people will complain. Just thought I would report on the effect of this round on groundhogs. This is the only round that shoots worth a darn in my 982vs. I shot it thru 2 2 liters of water which was unexpected because other rimfire v-max would not do. penetration was good on that so time to move to live media. Shot this 12# or so female at about 90 yrds with only shot she would give, thru the neck. Entrance hole was small but exit hole was about 3-4x the size of a 22 bullet. Also bleeding out the ears and mouth was apparent. Really wanted a upper body shot but not this time. This seems to have some good punch but not the blow up inside that i expected. Must not have hit enough tissue.

Looks like Dick's is traveling the Gander Mountain path to profitability (and extinction)

MC and Farm & Fleet sells them here for $10.99, same price for CCI. Remington 33 gr. Premier is $13.99- $14.99, and is much more accurate in my 882 than the 30 grainers from Hornady, CCI, and Federal.

BTW, nice shooting.

Performance as expected, for such light bullet, cost effective.
