    I hope this doesn't get moved to the ammunition and reloading forum like my last post concerning rimfire ammo. No one really looks at that forum for rimfire ammo. :rolleyes:

    I received some of the CCI Quick Shok 40 Gr. ammo on Friday and wanted to test it out as quickly as I could. I wasn't certain it would really segment into 3 sections, especially at only 1050 FPS. I took a Pepsi bottle out filled with water and shot it endways at 20 yards. The shot is low in the picture because I shot a lot closer than my rifle is set up for with my scope.

    The shot was from a 10/22 with 18" Butler Creek bull barrel.

    The results are pretty neat. The round essentially exploded upon impact. The pressure wave cracked the entry point area pretty good, and 3 segmented pieces were found on the inside of the bottle.

    I haven't tested this stuff for accuracy yet but I will if I get some more rounds. I want to keep the few 40 Gr. rounds I have for a while and not shoot 'em up. I'd also like to try the 32 Gr. version of this round as I'm sure it's more explosive on impact at over 1600 FPS! :D

    I'm sure this round would devastate small game. :)

    Enjoy... :D

    Great thinking on using the soda bottle to retrieve the fragments. I do agree with you that it would do a number on small game but also on a human. I believe someone posted what would a 22 do to a human. I think clearly you can see this type of round would do damage to just about any type of some material. Great post! JUNK

    Pony, just curious, did you shoot a standard .22 to see the difference in the entry hole?

    No, I didn't gdmoody. I have shot .22 hollowpoints into a bottle in a similar fashion and didn't notice the entry holes to be quite as large. I think the entry hole was larger on this round because almost all the energy was dissipated in a very short distance into the bottle. Since the bottle was full, the pressure wave generated by the round's expansion likely pushed the hole out to a bit larger diameter. The fragments sat at about the half-way point in the bottle so they didn't go far. :)
