    Tried drilling one out. A lot harder then I thought it would be. Got a little deeper but not much. Fired it and one out of the mold and did get a little more expansion on the one I made a little deeper but of course got less penetration. Fired into water soaked paper. Longer pins would be great and I would be in for some also but I think for hunting the smaller pins would still work well.

    This is what I'm talking about. I did not enlarge the opening, but drilled .09" diameter ~0.4" deep. Maybe not a direct comparison because the hollow point was not tapered, but should give an idea of what longer pins would do.

    This bullet was cast from the 5% tin alloy; all conditions were the same as the other two shots posted earlier. This one expanded to more than double caliber at 0.65". Penetration was (obviously) less at 18" as opposed to 24" and 26" of the other two.

    This is exactly what I'm looking for as well. 18" penetration is about perfect for the size deer I'm hunting with this round.


    Mihec, are you still interested in making some longer pins? If so, let me know when and how I can buy some. Thanks everyone for the hard work!

    I would like to have some new pins if they will let me get results like this.
