    It may have taken him dozens of rounds but I couldn't do it given hundreds of rounds.

    Capt.Red.44, you are right, and so is the fire from artillery pieces. No argument there. I’m talking about 2,000 riflemen dropping lead bullets over hills or into defilade positions from a distance that point accuracy isn’t practical. Whether from single shots or a SMLE at rapid fire, it would take the morale of the bad guys down a peg or two

    With that many shots, were I doing it, I would call those fortunate fliers without a lot of skill involved on my part.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
