Just a heads up for those of you who use Tapatalk to access NCH&F. I will be removing support for that app effective immediately. The reasons are many, but the primary one is that it allows spammers to post here without first being authorized to do so. This, coupled with their increasingly aggressive and invasive ads and pop ups, has caused us to remove them from the site entirely.
Jacketed bullets in short supply, and a suitable one for hunting being rare to start with, I took a Lyman 311410 mold, cast hard, made a jig to circumcise a meplat that would still allow the bullet to fit and feed from a mag, powder coated, and just started developing from there.
It's 134 grains about 1600+fps. Tree at roughly 100-110 yards.
