Handgun Hunting Knockdown power Small to Dangerous game Pistol Caliber Selection Bullet Types Grains


Hello and thank you for watching today what
we’re going to do as a follow up on our Google data studio sheets. We previously just did a video on rifle rounds
and this one is for handgun rounds and particularly hunting. We have to take down power and velocity. Now this chart is designed for desktop but
it should work decent on mobile so there’s only one link that I’ll be providing in the
description. And when we open this up we’re going to see
is what you’re looking at here on this screen a lot of colorful dots on a graph and then
down here we have a table of information. Now one thing you’ll notice if you highlight
one of these dots it tells you what the cartridge is the muzzle velocity, muzzle energy and
bullet weight in grains. So you can take a quick look if there’s a
few that stick out. But what this is designed to do is to compare
three to five cartridges specifically for hunting depending on what you’re hunting on
or hunting for. Now what we’re gonna do first is we’re gonna
take this up here handgun cartridges click that and I’ll load up all the handgun cartridges
are being displayed. Now I only have a handful of pistols. So one of the pistols I have is a 357 and
it’s a Magnum. Now for my first round I’m going to choose
357 Magnum. This will eliminate all other options and
display only the velocities and energies for the 357. Now I also have a 44 magnum so I’ll type
it 44 and I’ll check the box for 44 Magnum. I also have a 22 but I’m not gonna be hunting
with that maybe a 38 special I can throw that in my 357 and well that’s pretty much all
I have for handgun rounds get there on 9 millimeter in there if we want to do 9 millimeter Luger. So now we have four handgun cartridges. We’ll click on the graph here and we’ll see
what it displays. Now the first one is a 44 Remington Magnum
sticks out. Now has the largest grain so it has the biggest
dot to 229 grain. It has roughly 1600 feet per second velocity
and almost a thousand foot pounds in energy right behind is a 357. Down here we have the 9 millimeter and a 38
special. Now this is interesting to me because I didn’t
actually know that most 9 millimeter rounds have more velocity and slightly more muzzle
energy than a 38 special about something to keep in mind when I have my 38 loaded. So if we scroll down even further we’ll have
this table here. Now this is granular data and this is particularly
informational because when you hunt you run at a varying range of distances. This tells you what the muzzle energy is at
500 yards and at 100 yards. So when you’re deciding between a certain
round it’s good to take a look at this and make sure that you have enough energy out
at the distance you’re expecting to hunt that you are satisfied. Thank you very much for watching. If you have any questions or comments feel
