Ballistics Test: The Best .300 Win. Mag. Loads on the Market

It takes a lot of research and development and field research by a good team of engineers to design a bullet that will both expand and hold together through a wide range of velocities.
Check it out:

One of the hallmarks of a great big game bullet is its ability to offer good terminal performance from very close range to long range. Almost any bullet can be made to expand at long range, but the thin jackets and soft cores that promote such expansion don’t support bullet integrity when impact distances are close and velocities extremely high.

Conversely, it’s not that difficult to produce a bullet that will hold together at close-range, high-impact velocities, but the heavy jackets, harder lead-alloy cores and bonding processes used to create such bullets can inhibit expansion when distances stretch and velocities drop.

It takes a lot of research and development and field research by a good team of engineers to design a bullet that will both expand and hold together through a wide range of velocities.
