    Hornady’s swaged HBWC’s are not at all hard. Take that from a guy who has hardness tested them and been on a tour of the plant six times. Anything swaged from extruded lead wire is by necessity soft. One of the things one can only disabuse...

    Rubber mulch packed in a container works very poorly especially with small group shooting. The repeated impact in the same place makes a tunnel in the mulch and the bullets whiz thru unimpeded. Ask me how I know.
