During last weekend hunt, got into a discussion of why I felt hard cast bullets are better than Jacketed.    
  My primary argument was blood trail. (Penetration)  My partner took a shot with a 44 mag jacketed bullet. We looked for hours for some sign of a hit.   I told him that is why I switched to cast.    
    His only lame reply was that is not a very safe bullet.   All I could do was shake my head and walk away.    He was replying to full penetration, and where the bullet might go after the shot.  
    I think I am going to look for a new hunting partner.     I don’t want to get shot by a jacketed bullet that is not supposed to go through an animal.   I even get mad thinking about it now.

Scout,

Sounds like your buddy needs an education on bullet performance and sheepishly showed it by his reply to you. Tactfully Educate him.

Or, if he is online get him over here.



Regards, Ray
