tad under 100m , in an out, horn 220 showed expansion.

Bit of an update since starting this post a while ago..

Seems the mild loads 1800fps or so in the .375win work fine.

Heres 3 different deer I've shot with it in the past month.


Spikey 1 was shot from 100ms angling away, projectile entered but did not exit.
