...but we have discussed this ad nausea on this site (and others) and I find it somewhat tedious at this stage.

I think that's why these types of threads don't get the emotions going like they used to. We used to be able to sell tickets to these threads. Now everyone is to tired to get into it again! By now, with a dozen posts in on this thread, someone would have called Rod at least 4 names, James would have pounded his fist on the table, somebody else would have broke a beer bottle over Whitworths head, another guy would have been trying to throw Trademark out the window, and Gary would have said, "I'm watching" at least once by now. Me, Briarhopper (Dewayne), and Chance would be sitting back giving high fives and asking each other "OHHHHHH! Did you see that??!!"

I kinda miss those days! It was fun, in a way...


You mean people called me names? My blood pressure was so high my veins in my forehead were blocking my vision. Those were the good old days. There were times had some of us met in person it would have made cage fighting look like kindergarten recess.


Yeah, boy those were some good "discussions" back then. I'll never forget some of those conversations! I was actually referring to s4s4U when I mentioned "Rod", but yeah, that little description would have applied to you as well!

I've wondered where you've been, and hoped all was okay. Sure glad to hear from ya again!

Regardless whether your hunting handgun is loaded with cast or jacketed, as long as you put that bullet in the vital of the animal in your sights you will collect your critter......One may work faster then the other or visa/versa depending on circumstances but both will kill, as they have done hundreds of times over, if placed correctly....

Cast bullets are for people too impatient to wait for a broadside shot.

Or for people too poor to afford A-Frames or XPBs.

Or for people using those wimpy 44 Specials and 45 Colts.

I am staying out of this one. The two times I got into it I got a talking to by Gary. I shoot both but primarily XTP Mags, and I came across about 20 boxes of 300gr .452 Partitions. I've played with the Barnes some but they are expensive although since the Nosler Pro shop turned into yuppie central I've gone exclusively to Barnes in my long range rifles, especially my M40 in 300 RUM where I use the LRX bulletsMy 357 Herret I am running what I have left in 200gr SST's. My encore 300 Win Mag I switched to Triple Shocks from accubonds and my 375x444 I am running Hornady 270gr Spire points to break it in with and depending I may go with triple shocks there. My last 3, 375 JDJ's I ran 260gr accubonds. Oregon has gone to hell and Leupold and Nosler with it. They cater to yuppies. Oregon Trail and Cast Performance are still holding together though. I run CP's in my 500 Linebaugh and with the discontinuation of the 400gr XTP I will go back to them for my 475 Linebaugh also. I use 430gr Oregon Trails in my Marlin 45-70. Aside from all the useless info I provided the one thing I have found is whatever you use you have to have full confidence in it.

I am "all in" with Cast Performance and the 335gr WFNGC for 45 Colt and 460 S&W.
