    Same Lee 452-252 SWC or 452-255 RF I use quite a bit loaded to 900fps or so. For me, you can go with a 9mm and worry about expansion, fps etc or go with a big hole to start. This is for the house, though as I'm pretty sure that big chunk of lead...

    Congrats on that shot. Did you recover the boolit? I have a couple of the T/C Compass rifles and they, along with the Savage Axis, are the best of that price range imho.

    I've been a Nikon fan since I got a set of Monarch Binocs and went on Safari. For the price the clarity can't be beat and took a back seat to none of the big high dollar ones like Leica, Zeiss etc. Still running fine. I have a number of Nikon's...

    I've used mine for 308 but use the wax and have Wheaties for breakfast. The Lee excells at pistol length stuff imho. If you want to do longer and keep it simple the whack a mole will work.
