They are simple the wrong medicine for these heavy boned 1,500 pound plus animals. Work great on smaller game, but when bovines are in question, no thanks.

Did the four bullets on the left travel straight? The distored noses make them look like the turned sideways.

No it didnt appear they did. They were pretty mangled. In the bullet on the rights defense, it hit the buff at about 1800 fps which is well outta range for what a cast should be shot at.

so from what I see in the pic and what little I know about cast lead bullets is that there are good one`s Thumbs Up! and not so good ones Thumbs Down!...just like jacketed...


If I were to purchase a good cast bullet for, lets say as an example, a black bear hunt...what make would you recommend based on your testing???

Any idea of the hardness, or lack thereof, of those on the left?

Rod, too.

Short cuts often lead to long recoveries.

No, just what they are advertised at. The good looking 44 mag bullets were from matts bullets in arkansas and in the past the garretts have done well.

I just got around to weighing those two recovered 325gr WFN-GC .44 Mag Matt's Bullets that traveled to the off side of the water buffalo when shot from about 7-10 yards.


318.7 grains
319.3 grains


I'm quite happy.
