Hey, question about bullet penetration performance. Here is the info:

Two swift A Frame bullets of the same weight, fired from the same rifle, hitting two bears of the same size and build, both at 100 yards and encountering the same trajectory masses through both bears...essentially all the same aspects except for velocity: one bullet hitting the bear at 2000 fps and the other hitting it at 3000 fps. Which one of these A Frames would have a deeper penetration?

For those questioning other factors, take for granted that all factors are the same except for velocity upon impact.

Thank you for your input.

‘Some’ bullets penetrate more at a slower speed. They don’t open up as much, have less frontal area. As to the properties of individual bullet types at the different speeds, time for some testing.
