Will someone help me understand Solids?
I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around the use of solids. I just completed my first trip to Africa in July for PG and am working my butt off to get back as soon as possible in hopes of going after a buffalo.
I say all that just to give me experience level hunting Africa. As I understand the use of solids, they are not designed to expand rather penetration is the goal. What I do not understand is I would think the expansion of a round nose bullet would deliver the energy of the round and provide more damage and stopping force than a solid. Obviously I am incorrect since the use of solids on DG is appears to be universal. I am just having a hard time wrapping my head around this. Could someone please break it down Barney style and explain it to me, I would really appreciate it.
