Wet pack expansion test

Into soaked phone books from left to right/top and bottom, COP 125gr, Barnes 125gr,Bonded Golden Saber 125gr,and PDX1 125gr. The COP bullet was loaded the same as the Barnes bullet but the velocity was around 50fps slower. It out penetrated the rest. The PDX1 bullet penetrated the least in the wetpack. All in all I was the most surprised by the COP. It out penetrated and out exanded the Barnes bullet. Velocity was around 1300fps. The 230gr HST and RangerTs are there to compare. The penetration on these were no where near the 357sig bullets.

Thanks, it stands for copper only projectiles. They're a little cheaper than barnes. They also make loaded ammo but I havent seen any in 357sig. I know a wet pack doesnt tell much but when you are handloading it might tell you if youre pushing a bullet too fast. I loaded the 230gr ranger t and hst with 7gr of unique which is over data max. The HST held up fairly well but the ranger folded. The 125gr barnes might have been pushed a little too hard also.
