I would have expected more deformation on the entry at the very least...

Pretty anti-climactic. :( Next time, fill it with black powder first. :)

The golf ball got a ride from a cannon afterwards. If I can find the pictures I'll post what a .270 does :D

FMJs do that. Sometimes we shoot bowling pins in matches, and most guys switch to a soft point type of bullet since FMJs fly through them so easily, its hard to tell if you even hit the thing.

Did the ball go for a bit of a flight at least? That's very anticlimactic.

Not really no, it just rolled off the stand.

The .270 vs the golf ball was more interesting:

That was much better. I assume the damage was more significant?

Not that great actually.

Here's a .308 FMJ though:

I think that's really cool how the entry reseals to a size smaller than the bullet diameter. I might just have to break a personal rule and buy some golf balls.

I always figured golf courses were a waste of a good rifle range.
