    They are old and relatively unknown. You will probably have to provide a sample or a complete description for someone now to make them.

    ............Yes, the case neck is short. . However in the photo it is compared to the 30-40 Krag which has a long neck. Yet for comparisons sake, the 8x56R is VERY short. I am NOT an expert on these rifles/carbines, but from my experience (What I've...

    Those don't look as bad as some I've recovered! Especially considering the amount of squish that load produces. Those wads must be tough plastic. Maybe I'll order some when I reorder components. Thick and tough is a good thing. Longbow

    Not sure but I think the ball stays with the slug. It pushes up inside to ensure the slug obturates and fills the bore so I have to think it is pretty well lodged in the slug's butt. As far as I know though the Tru-Ball like most factory HB slugs...

    I see your velocities are a bit apples and oranges for comparison which is unfortunate. Not much you can do as it is factory ammunition but looking at the first three listed velocities run from 1410 to 1700 FPS for same weight slug which is a lot. ...

    Being 'dumb', being careless, and being ignorant are all different. I would call this an accident and you will have to look at potential prevent-ability. Being careless means I knew it would happen but ignored what I knew. Being dumb means I...

    Faustus: Yes, I think you are right about the RIO, original and classic Brennekes. The reloadable slugs I bought about 40 years ago had stiff leather (I think) washers on either side of the felt/fiberous wad. Newer versions I think use plastic...

    Diets by definition don't work - simply because a diet is based on denial. 'I won't do this or eat that etc.' and what do you do once you have reached your goal? Go right back to the habits that made you fat in the first place. To be...

    Nice going! From the distortion of that slug I have to ask if you are using pure or at least soft lead? The slug is quite banged up. Did its job though that's for sure. Longbow

The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
