    I guess my question with Pirates is this. If you kill the guy at their helm at 150+ yards, do you really think the rest of the group will come try to hassle you? After that initial event, any indicator that says they are still coming. Means...

    The Lee 200 gr gas checked cast is my most accurate bullet in my .357 mag handi rifle. Not a max but not that much difference. I load mine in .360DW cases just a thousandth off the riling. Sighting in the scope I got 3 in one ragged hole @ 50...

    Hard to go wrong with a Lab IMO. They are in many respects the total opposite of a Pit Bull. Friendly, good with kids/family, dedicated and totally sane all the time with a need to please.

    Break it in, clean it, oil it. Keep playing with it. My guess is if you show it some love and patience by the time you get 250 rounds through it you may be pleasantly surprised.

    Agree that large caliber and a large meplat will work better for penetration and opening a large bleeding wound channel than a HP at slow speeds. What your asking for is somewhat of a contradiction in terms. Increasing the caliber size...
