Ballistics of the High Power Rifles
Ballistics of the High Power Rifles-What is the grouping of the new Springfield rifle at 200 yards, and if possible I would like to know the full ballistics; also can soft point cartridges be obtained and how are they on deer?
The 1906 New Springfield will keep bullets just inside 3 inches at 200 yards, using match ammunition. This is exceptional accuracy. I regret that I cannot give the complete ballistics of the New Springfield, but presuming that the Winchester of the same caliber is the same in this respect, I will give the ballistics of that are: Weight of bullet, 150 grains; muzzle velocity, 2700 feet; muzzle energy, 2428 foot pounds. The U.M.C. Co. make soft point cartridges for this rifle. For hunting big game, especially at long range, there is nothing superior to the soft point bullets.
