    Here are some gel tests of some .458socom rounds, 2 supersonic 1 500gr expanding subsonic.

    The 500gr subsonic tested is the 500gr Subsonic Expanding bullet at 975fps. Penetration was around 33". Ammo and gel pics in link.!/B...egory=14035014

    I think you would be surprised how quite 308 supersonic rounds can be when using a good can. I do have a 300 blk also, but for deer I would definitely prefer the 308. I think the 300 blk is suitable for deer shooting supersonic ammo out to around 100 yards. If I was building a dedicated rifle for deer I would build a 308 though. It just gives better performance in case you get a longer shot.

    If can's come off the NFA before then I was thinking something like this. Most of my shot have been 50 yards or less so it should not be an issue. I don't see why people seem to think deer are made of steel and have to fire small comets at them.

    That being said, $40+ an box, fuck that noise -this is funny to say but I'll stick with my .35rem it's cheaper.
