    I used the 50-50 WW alloy on three deer and got good expansion. One at 150 yards (140 steps from my tree)? While it was heat treated the nose was annealed. I can only assume expansion as I never recovered any bullets but they blew a nice hole. Later I found that with gas checks I could still drive them at about 1900-2000 fps out of my 30-30 (chronographed). I also used a heavier bullet that weighed in at 188 grain and used Lee Liquid Alox. They were sized to 309 and shot well. 50-50 alloy seems to work fine. tin might help if you have problems filling the mold.

    If you get good performance for the first couple of shots or so that is fine for hunting. I rarely shoot 5 shot groups into deer.
