20 Round Box
ITEM 2DG 330
At the time of this writing (02-19) I’ve long wanted to introduce a line of mono-metal, non-expanding, dangerous game loads for our large handgun and 45-70 offerings. These new “Dangerous Game” (DG) loads are super high quality, very powerful, and will live up to their namesake.
Mono-metal bullets have a few advantages (a couple of disadvantages too) over typical non-expanding hard cast bullets. These advantages may or may not be meaningful to each individual, depending on your usage. The advantages are that they are cleaner burning/firing than hard cast bullets. Also, hard cast bullets can smear their nose profile when they hit large bones at close range/high velocity. When the flat nose smears and changes shape, it can impact straight line penetration. The disadvantages are cost and case capacity issues……..mono-metal bullets made of copper or brass alloys are lightweight for their length. As an example, the 380 gr.
Below you can see the firearms I used to obtain velocities. We use real world firearms, not laboratory test barrels that give false high velocities. Again, you can see that the shortest barrel did not give the slowest velocity. Please read this short article to understand why. VELOCITY VERSUS BARREL LENGTH
➤ 1,584 fps -- Freedom Arms model 83, 6-inch barrel
➤ 1,532 fps -- Clements Custom, 6-inch barrel
➤ 1,551 fps -- Bowen Nimrod, 5.5-inch barrel
This Dangerous Game 475 Linebaugh load is simply our 480 Ruger load on Steroids (increased velocity of 150+ fps) as it should be. This load will be good for critters that are very large (2,500+ lbs.) provided you place the bullet where it needs to go.
