    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!

    waksupi, You have both more skill and patience than I do. I have 3 and they are very well made but are plain without the scrimshaw or carving. They are using horns. Your horn is both beautiful and definitely a work of art. Thanks for the picture. james

    There seems to be a delay in your check arriving. Will ship as soon as it gets here!
