I was talking to a local bullet casting shop today to see what was available on the local market and of course he wanted to know what they would be used for. So I told him a .44 Mag loaded to about 1000fps for bear and moose defense. The gentleman then suggested a softer cast bullet (15 brinnel) for the lower velocity loads of 1000-1200 fps. He said I didn't realy need a hard bullet until you go up to higher velocities. He expected no bullet deformtion and good penetration out of his 15 brinnel bullets, and in fact maybe better accuracy then his hard bullets (18 brinnel). What do you guys think? Is a softer bullet ok at these lower velocities? Should I reserve the premium hard stuff for my faster hunting loads? His opion was basically I am trying to put Ferrari race tires on my VW by using his or your or Cast Perfomance hard casts at such low velocities.
