My buddy Richard Mann is testing DRT Ammo’s 60 grain .223 projectile on whitetail deer. I’m curious about DRT Ammo’s terminal performance, as I’m a big proponent of frangible ammunition being the way of the future. Richard’s three part series on DRT ammo is here – warning for one graphic pic in part 2:
It appears from the tests that the DRT .223 ammo was sufficiently lethal as a bambi-whacker. As usual, shot placement is king – shoot an animal in a non-lethal location and your damage won’t be as good, but shoot it somewhere important and it seems to die. I wonder if the 60 grain .223 would be sufficient for feral pigs, as I might be going on my very first hog hunt this year.
