    Looks like I may need to go a little harder than I had planned. I got some samples of the bullets before I purchased the mold. In my rifle the accuracy wasn't good until I approached 2000 fps. 1" dot at 100 yards. Still some work to do but I am pretty sure I can get it under an inch.

I then ask what about a jacked bullet did they consider designed to expand and the guy said hollow point. I took this information and Goodsteel was kind enough to make me a jig to hollow point a 45 cal boolit. I have not been close enough yet to try it out or been stoped by a DNR officer but have little doupt I woud be fine. I could possible have a fight on my hands depending on the DNR guy and his mood but I think it unlikly with the hollow point.
    At one time last year i was at a trapper convention and ask one game warden about something and the other one jump on me and it was not what I was asking and the one I was asking told him off that is not what he is asking. So the one I was asking explain to me what I ask. So I would ask the main office or field office not someone that try to make there own laws that is not the state.The game warden I have in my county is good and he dose check the laws to let me know the detail of what I ask. he comes to the house to tag my otters also and had someone contact me to take care there beaver problem also.So I am lucky for the one I have .

    It depends on the Game Warden you get that day, and on his/her mood/irritability/hunger/lack of sleep/etc, etc. My encounters have mostly been courteous and civil. However, I did get a younger Warden that ask to see me broadheads. I complied by handing him my quiver. He took out each and every arrow and ran his fingers through all my broadheads. After licking his bloody finger, he thank me and wished me good luck. Better safe than sorry.
