Ruger ARX ammo

I bought that box of Ruger ARX ammo today and took it to the field with 2 half gal milk jugs and filled them with water at the creek.

I was using a Blackhawk.
Ammo shot to POA which was a pleasant surprise since it is 118 gr bullets and billed at 1307 fps. The jugs made a big slash when hit and flew off the section of pine log
I had them on; one jug split in half and the other was torn up badly.

There were 2 issues, one of the rnds had to be pushed hard into a chamber in the cylinder to seat all the way and when I unloaded that unfired rnd it took a lot of effort to push it back out.
The other rnds just dropped in and dropped out.

It is not dirty ammo though I only fired 2 rnds. I did not see any plastic smears in the barrel or chambers such as you can get from plastic wads
in a shotgun barrel.

Next time I will try a harder tgt, books or magazines and see if I can recover the bullet.

Did they whistle? I remember hearin those brenneke slugs whistle as they flew. Those look like they got that potential.

Thanks for letting us know how it worked on the jugs. Have you considered lining up five or six jugs to see how far it will travel and recovering the slug?

+1! That's the easiest way, in my opinion. Thanks for posting your results!

My wife & I did a function test of Sig Sauer's new self defense ammo in ( .380 acp. )our CCW's, both SigP238's with great results.
