Trajectory, wind drift and time of flight are governed by two characteristics of the bullet:

Ballistic coefficient

Speed

GS Custom HV bullets consistently give you the highest BC two characteristics of the bullet:

values and more speed than what is possible with any other brand.

Time of Flight

If you think slow bullets are OK, consider this.

An antelope that spooks and takes off at the instant you break the shot, will be going at 10km/h almost instantly.

That is 277cm/sec.

It will move 80mm (3.15”) in the time it takes the bullet to cover 200m.

Slide32 l.jpg

What does this mean in practice? two characteristics of the bullet:

Momentum and Energy

A light, fast bullet, with the same momentum as a heavier, slower bullet, will penetrate to the same depth, if both are similarly constructed.

If momentum is the same, the faster bullet will have more kinetic energy.

Kinetic energy and wound channel volume are tied together.

If the choice is between two bullets that will go to the same depth but one will result in a larger wound channel volume, there is no contest.

Momentum = Speed x Weight

Kinetic Energy = Weight/2 x Speed Squared

This is not rocket science – It is just logic.

Bullet Failure

36


Slide37 l.jpg

  • This section on bullet failure is in the context of old technology bullets.

  • hunting of game for venison or trophy. Varminting and sport shooting have different requirements.

  • Bullet failure occurs when:

  • An expanding bullet:

  • Fails to expand at all

  • Deviates significantly from the original bullet path

  • Expands to the point of complete fragmentation

  • A solid bullet:

  • Fails to penetrate deep enough

  • Deviates significantly from the original bullet path

  • Bends or breaks

37


Slide38 l.jpg

In the past many reloaders went to the trouble and expense of developing two loads: One to accommodate the hunting of game in bush and the other for the hunting of plains game at longer ranges.

38


Slide39 l.jpg

With lead core bullets, the high impact speeds of close hunting, is too destructive of the bullet to give consistent results. For bush hunting, where distances are short, it is therefore better to use heavy for caliber bullets, at lower speeds, to prevent bullet failure.

39


Slide40 l.jpg

The lower impact speeds of longer range plains game hunting, allows the use of lighter, faster bullets for flatter trajectories and good terminal performance. With lead core bullets, this convention of using slow, heavy bullets for bush and lighter, faster bullets for plains game has become the accepted way.

It is not uncommon to

find petals at the same distance into the animal as the bullet shaft.

In the tests illustrated

Rock solid reliability.


Slide51 l.jpg

Twist and Static Stability Factor (S/F): Short and medium range.

Stability factor is a major driver of how a bullet will behave during and after impact.

The manner in which the bullet will pass from air to tissue is governed by the stability factor.

Once the bullet is submerged in the target, other forces determine what its behaviour will be and stability factor no longer plays a role.

Applications of flat fire to 500m with medium calibres cannot have too much twist (stability factor).



Slide53 l.jpg

Twist, Dynamic Stability and Tractability: range.

Long and extreme range.

  • The factors that must be considered are:

  • A match between bullet length and form,

  • twist rate and stability factor.

  • The launch speed.

  • 3. The required terminal performance.


Slide54 l.jpg

GS Custom HV bullets can be applied over a much wider range of speeds.

This .224” bullet is used regularly in 222 Remingtons at 3600 fps and up to 4750 fps in a custom built wildcat 22x64.



Slide56 l.jpg

At speeds that will reduce lesser bullets to dust, HV bullets still retain 80% weight.

The flat meplat, cylinder shape that is left, with all the petals torn off, results in even more destruction in the wound channel than that of a more rounded shape of larger diameter. The combination of speed, retained weight and a uniform cylinder shape gives a laser straight wound channel of larger volume and more depth, than is possible with any other shape.

With HV Bullets you get predictable, extreme

impact speed terminal ballistics, previously only

possible with the toughest of premium bullets.

Develop one load, take it anywhere, shoot anything.

But this does not sound logical.

How does it actually work?


Slide57 l.jpg

Here are some quotes from “Bullet Penetration – Modeling the Dynamics and the Incapacitation Resulting from Wound Trauma.” by Duncan MacPherson, published by Ballistic Publications, Box 772, El Segundo CA 90245

“The permanent wound cavity effective crossectional area at any location is equal to the bullet crossection at that location modified by a shape factor for the bullet configuration……” Page 58

“The maximum disruption is for a sharp edged cylinder….” Page 89

“The second factor immediately obvious from table 11-3 is the dramatic difference in effectiveness for a cylinder relative to all other configurations (which differ little from each other). The efficiency of the cylinder (full wadcutter) has long been known….” Page 277


Slide58 l.jpg

We have observed first hand the effects of an edged cylinder shape on game with our devastatingly effective FN bullet.

The HV bullet in reality turns into an FN bullet at high impact speeds.

At worst then, the HV bullet will expand to double caliber or more, with excellent retention. At best, it will turn into an FN on impact – totally reliable and very efficient, every time, 1600 fps to 5000 fps.

Slide59 l.jpg

Why is a flat meplat or cylinder shape at high speed so effective?

What is the actual mechanism at work?

THE RULES

The passage of the bullet through tissue displaces tissue from the bullet

path. This displacement results in the displaced material moving away

from the centre line of the bullet path at a given speed.

The elements of speed are time and distance. The shorter the time is in

relation to the distance, the higher the speed.

The higher the speed of the displaced tissue, the larger the temporary

cavity will be.

When the temporary cavity exceeds the elastic properties of the tissue, it

contributes to the permanent cavity caused by the physical passage of the

bullet.

The shaft of the bullet plays no role in the size of either the permanent, or

the temporary cavity, as it is not in contact with the tissue until it has almost

stopped. The exception is, of course, a tumbling bullet.

With these rules in mind, here is how different nose shapes work.


Slide60 l.jpg

Assume a cone shaped bullet that is not deformed by the forces acting on it

in the penetration of tissue. The result will be a crush cavity, where tissue is

mechanically crushed by the bullet, and a temporary cavity, determined by

the time over which the tissue is displaced to the diameter of the bullet.

As is well known, this nose configuration will not have a permanent wound

channel of large volume. In practise, this would be the spitser bullet that

does not mushroom at all, or a low velocity military full metal jacket that is

notorious for wounding of animals. The permanent wound channel will fall

somewhere between the crush cavity and the temporary cavity, depending

on the impact speed of the bullet.


Slide61 l.jpg

Here is a bullet mushroomed to double the original diameter. From experience we

know that this will result in a far bigger permanent wound cavity than the previous

bullet. The reason for this is simply because the relationship between time and

displacement distance has changed. The crush cavity has increased and, due to the

altered, shortened nose configuration, the time element has shortened. The

displacement speed of the tissue is increased, causing it to stretch away from the

bullet path much further and disrupting more tissue before the disrupting force can

be matched by the resilience of the tissue. Depending on the impact speed, the

permanent cavity falls somewhere between the temporary cavity and the crush

cavity. The higher the speed, the closer it is to the temporary cavity and, the lower

the speed, the closer it is to the crush cavity.


Slide62 l.jpg

This brings us to the reason for the effectiveness of a cylinder shape. Examples of

this would be the GS Custom HV and FN bullets, and other monometal bullets, solid

shank bullets and partition style jacketed lead bullets, that assume cylinder nose

shapes when impact speed is high enough. The displacement distance remains at

caliber size, but the time element has been shortened to the extent that it has all

but disappeared. The displacement velocity is so fast and violent that the resilience

of the tissue is greatly exceeded and the temporary cavity contributes much more to

the permanent cavity than with any other shape. Additionally, penetration is

improved and a cylinder is far more predictable in its path than any other shape.


Slide63 l.jpg

This means you can now develop one load and take it anywhere cylinder shape. Examples of

If over and under expansion is solved with HV Bullets, how do they compare to the traditional two bullet setup? Can HV Bullets really replace both effectively?

The comparison that follows is between the 150 gr HV bullet, a lead core 165 gr boat tail and a 220gr round nose flat base lead core.

Momentum and energy figures are based on 85% retention for the HV and 75% for the lead core bullets.


Slide64 l.jpg

Momentum carries the bullet forwards into the animal. From this

graph one sees that the 220 gr bullet is better than the 165 gr bullet

at close range, supporting the traditional way of thinking. It is, however,

outperformed by the HV from the muzzle. New rules!


Slide65 l.jpg

Energy is in close relationship to the temporary wound cavity volume.

The larger the temporary cavity and the more effective the bullet nose shape, the more it contributes to the permanent cavity. The graph speaks for itself.
