I had many questions from lots of people why a Titan, hope this information assist you all. It is quite technical and various scientific and mathematical calculations is involved. So yes everything might not seam 100% to some experts out there but it is as close as humanly possible based on information available and various experts worldwide that assisted in the tests and the gel slow mow videos.
Three aspects I would like to highlight to you today: BRSD – Bullet Retained sectional density, BC - Bullet coefficient and penetration test.
What is BRSD: Sectional density is the ratio of an object's mass to its cross-sectional area. It conveys how well an object's mass is distributed (by its shape) to overcome resistance. For illustration, a nail can penetrate a target medium with less force than a coin of the same mass.
Sectional density is used in gun ballistics. It is defined either as a projectile's mass divided by its cross sectional area, or as a projectile's mass in pounds divided by the square of its diameter in inches.
Normally hunters have the mindset that heavier bullets have higher sectional density. In a ratio of weight backing up the initial diameter of the bullet. In actual fact only once the bullet hit the point of impact is where the penetrating and working function of a bullet happens, this is where internal organ etc. damage have to take place. Thus the bullet have to increase in original diameter and but loss of weight and sectional density.
If you now compare different bullets you will find the following:
We are going to use a 7mm or .284 bullet for example:
.284 calibre 150 grain bullet has a sectional density of .266
For a 150gn copper jacket/partition bullets that mushrooms to 1.5 times original diameter and retains 50% of the original weight the BRSD is .0590
For a bonded core/corlockts bullet that mushrooms to 1.5 times original diameter and retains 75% of the original weight the BRSD is 0.0885
For an Expanding Monolithic bullet that mushrooms to 2 times original diameter and retains 100% of the original weight the BRSD is .0624
For a Titan bullet 137gn bullet that retains its shank @ 90gn, after controlled defragmentation inside the animal/target thus retains 65% of the original weight the BRSD is 0.1594 almost double of any other bullet design available.
In ballistics, the ballistic coefficient (BC) of a body is a measure of its ability to overcome air resistance in flight. It is inversely proportional to the negative acceleration — a high number indicates a low negative acceleration. This is roughly the same as saying that the projectile in question possesses low drag, although some meaning is lost in the generalization. BC is a function of mass, diameter, and drag coefficient.
Nosler 150 accubonds .493
Woodleigh 160 is .486
Barnes TSX 120 is .373
Titan 137 is .508
7mm WSM 100 yard Bone Gelatine
Berger 168gr VLD/100 yards- Velocity 2930fps Penetration 14.25 inches Retained weight 40.9gr
Nosler 150gr BT/100 yards Velocity 2913fps Penetration 20.5 inches Retained weight 46.6grs
Barnes 150gr TTSX/ 100 yards Velocity 2922fps Penetration 32 inches Retained weight 102.7grs
Titan 137gr EX/100 yards velocity 3290fps, penetration exit both gel blocks, >36 inches retained weight 90gr
Using all 4 of the same bullets at much lower velocities from approximately 1700fps-1919fps the Penetration was 16 inches for the 168gr Berger/retained 102.7grs, the Nosler BT 150grs Penetration was 13.5 inches and retained 99.2grs, and the Barnes TTSX 150gr Penetration was 21 inches and retained 149grs. Titan retained 90gr penetration was 24 inches.
All calibres when comparing a smaller one to a larger one and if they have the same size bullets available then the smaller calibre will always be higher in the SD and BC area's such as 243-100grs to a 284-100grs or a 243 90gr to a 277-90gr and so on and so on. No one is saying that a conventional bullet won't kill because obviously they will and have for a very long time and will continue to for a long time to come. But technology has bettered in just about all areas of life no matter what the subject is. Monolithic bullets that are a little lighter within each calibre will simply penetrate as well or better than conventional bullet that are a little heavier with a little bit higher SD. Nothing wrong with Partitions or Corlokt's they work great it's just a difference in what one likes to use verses another
This is why a Titan can achieve:
Higher velocities, reduced recoil, higher accuracy, less meat damage, 99% consistent completed exit wounds (exclude frontal shots on bigger animals), locally manufactured, always available.
