    Here’s some better pics of my Lee 200gr RNGC sized to 309 and shot from Win 88/308.
    Boolits were shot into wet Acklands Granger catalogs.

    always amazed how long lead rifle bullets can expand so much that there about 4 times shorter and still in a one nice piece. 10 years ago I probably wouldn't of believed that could work

    Hunt, what alloy did you use for that Lee 200 grain? How fast was it going when it hit the target?

    Going 2100 fps @muzzle.

    NOE 360-165-SWC-RG2

    The bullet on the L is set up to be shot in my 357 Mag. loads while the bullet on the R was shot for a 38 snubby at +P velocity, the only difference between the two is the expanded bullet at the time was just coated with Alox/JPW lube now powder coated and the gas check was left off since the MV / pressure didn't require one.



    NOE TL452-234-RF

    Bullet was cast from 50/50 powder coated an allowed to air cool, shot from my HI Point 45 ACP carbine at just a little over 1K fps.

    Wow!!
    That’s quite the cavity on those 45 ACP boolits. Reminds me of ...Barnes MZ Expander sabot.
    Impressive!!

    Here is my 45 ACP H&G #130 (185 SWC) from today.

    I'm playing with soft alloy, BHN 8, about 60/40 WW/Pure mix. I was shooting clays 1000 fps @ 25 yds, soft wet dirt berm. Bullets were cast two days ago and coated yesterday,they really are soft now.
