Default Bent Bullet

Yes I know this is the wrong place to post a 300 Blackout picture but, I relate to and know this bunch of guys better than in the other forums. My son an I were cleaning and fixing up the back stop behind a dulling tree and found this 225 grain 30 cal 300 Blackout bullet. It was bent around a full 180 degrees. The picture shows this bent bullet and a new one. Makes you wonder what this projectile went through. This subsonic load was shot in my suppressed SBR AR.

These heavy grain 300 tumble. I shoot the 125 and 135 Grain. This won't happen.

225 Grain equals low and slow

I think that's one of Wile E. Coyote's Acme Boomerang Bullets.

My thought is the barrel twist rate is not correct for stabilizing the length and weight bullet being used.
