  • Disintegrating bullets

    Was at a job today, this farm is close to town with a few houses near by. They have a fox issue so I asked about who cleans them up or if I could come clean up a few foxes. The cocky said they have a bloke who comes in and uses these special bullets that if they even hit a blade of grass, a twig or anything for that matter they disintegrate on impact.
    he said the guy uses them because of the houses nearby.
    he didn't know what caliber or any other info.
    have you fellas heard of these bullets or is he having me on?

    Maybe a 17HMR or a centrefire running something like a Barnes Grenade projy? I think a lot of varmint projectiles driven fast are pretty explosive on impact?
    Long distance short term relationships are my specialty...

      Yeah, I reckon it's a talked-up 17HMR round.
      They say wind makes them useless and joke about hitting a blade of grass causing a miss.

        Ol’ mates pest control guy is... O.A.F.

        Next time the Cocky is around, let off a Souvlaki fart or two. If he comments, tell him you like to get off a couple of frangible rounds before moving onto more solid loads.

          Yeah Magoo the little bro has one the wind does affect it big time.
          I still prefer the 22Wmr.

            You being left handed. Why don’t you show ol’ mate your ‘left handed’ hammer... And explain to him how it works on impact for you.

                I’ve heard a bloke once claim his 17 ackley improved would blow up bullets if they hit grass, I was always pretty doubtful though.

                  Good excuse to buy a FX Monsoon or something similar and tell the cocky “ nah mate I just use an old slug gun, much safer than exploding bullets”.

                    The foxes are one up on me, can't even shoot at them until I have finished looking for deer in the area.
                    Today I had 2 within shotty range.
                    First one was in the prime deer area and was a good one with a great coat and tail.

                    After the usual no deer walk, I tried sitting on a log in a likely spot and had a younger one running in to the reed whistle,
                    stopped and sat head-on at 30yds.
                    As it's head was above the grass, I just put the crosshair on it and let the Swede rip.
                    Forgot to aim low and the hot Woodleighs hit a good 1 1/2" high at 100, I also tend to shoot high unsupported.
                    Not like the grass would have affected the mighty Swede.

                    Prob would have hit it with the 22mag but it wasn't sighted in, it is now.

                      That was the exact story told when the 17Rem was just a baby on the market, then it transferred to the .204 cal and occasionally up to a fragile .224 projectile.

                      Bedtime stories all.
                      The TRUTH is out there,
                      the Aliens think its a great joke on us.

                        What about a left handed Steyr Scout?

                        Nope... Ain't gunna happen.

                        But back to subject. There was a bloke getting around online once, who bought some custom made and quite frangible bullets from bullet maker... WhoThis bloke use to load these for night time and daytime use.

                        I wouldn't have believed it, if I hadn't heard the excuse for missing the intended live target myself...

                        "Is it down???"

                        "Nah mate... Ya missed."

                        "Naaah! Couldn't have..."

                        "Reckon ya did..."

                        "Must have deflected or exploded hitting a blade of grass... Could have, coz it was one of my night time loads?"



                        How the fuck do you reply to that???
