    A Big Thank You

    I have been hanging around here for a while and have gleaned a lot of information. After almost a year of experimenting with the knowledge I have gained here, I put it to the test this weekend. .357 Magnum and 45-70 rifles both took deer with cast bullets, 75 yards and 30 yards, respectively. (yes, that is correct.) Both deer dropped on the spot, not another step.

    Both bullets displayed performance beyond all the commercial bullets I have used. For "Muscle Car" cartridges, I see no reason to ever use an off-the-shelf bullet again.

    BrianB .... The last MJ cartridge I fired from my civilian firearms was in October 1973, taking a Mulie in Colorado. I have 69 rifles & pistols of all shapes, sizes, calibers & persuasions. And they all function quite nicely on cast boolits. I hope you get the same satisfaction & enjoyment that I have.
