Well done. That's a great round imo. I'm not familiar with PBR ammo, around here that means Pro Bull Rider.

wow, looks like 1200fps is really a sweet spot for those 200gr xtp's when you want penetration

That may be too powerful for the average citizen. I think we need some laws to restrict the muzzle velocity and mass of the projectile to prevent absolute anarchy. I think maybe 10 grains for the projectile and 100 fps? Clearly no one should have a death ray like this!

No I am not serious.

Pretty good load there! Thanks a bunch Andrew. That is virtually velocity to one of my pet loads. 200 XTP over a bunch of Accurate no. 9. 1200 fps in my G20 with stellar groups. Good to see that it performed pretty nicely in gel.

I have heard a bunch of times that XTPs clog up with denim and don't expand. I haven't seen that to be true in my testing, and now this video.

They will if they aren't pushed fast enough. See my channel for another 200 gr XTP at lower velocity. It plugged right up and completely failed to expand.
