Zee,

I haven't taken any game yet, but the Speer 158 Deep Curl may be worth giving a try - now that they are available again. I've loaded several and shot in my new Talo 686 - they're just as accurate as the XTP's. I'm thinking with the bonded jacket, they should be as good or better than the XTP's. Hopefully I'll get some data with them this season.

Is that the Holland bag your resting the Dominator on?


Yep.

Let me know.

I have several hundred of the XTPs. Both 158 and 180 grain. So, I am unlikely to reinvest anytime soon. I have not found their wall yet.

Maybe the .358 Winchester.

This was a 104 yard shot and I didn?t hit major bone. I can?t speak for a closer shot that hits a shoulder or what not at this speed.

Though, I?d like to try.

I know some guys that have used the 180 gr XTP'S in the 358 JDJ for deer...they work....but, that's probably at their velocity limit...good deer bullets though. I too bet the Deep Curls would work pretty dang good

Well done on the shooting and pictures as usual. I am also glad to see a hunting handgun being put to work rather than gathering dust in a collection .

I do love a 35 Reminton handgun! I admit to being a traditionalist and sticking to the 200 grain weight. It is interesting to see experiments with lighter bullets driven faster. I tried the 180 Hornady SSP and have taken several animals with the 200 grain FTX, but always come back to the 200 grain round nose.

I like revolvers.
I like BA SPs
I like Break Action SPs




If you get the chance to shoot or own a Dominator.........do so. If you like a 1911.........yeah. It just feels right.
