Pretty awesome bull the Gary Reeder got with a 454 and old school bullets!

I have read up on those Sierra's a bunch, seem similar to the old FA bullets with really hard lead and thick jacket. If I remember, Sierra says its the hardest lead core of any bullet they have made. I have not tried them myself but have been tempted; they look good and are very reasonably priced as mentioned.

proof is in the puddin!

I bought a bunch of those 400 grain speer slugs for my 475L. Shot a few of them, but ended up settling on some of those cast hollow points from Dick Thompson. I need to find those speer bullets and post them for sale. I'll never use them.

Brenden, I've been shopping for them so PM me with a price. I may be interested!

At the same time, curious why you chose not to use them if you want to share...

The thing I like most about the Sierra 300 grain 45 caliber bullets, they are the most accurate bullets I have found. ( in my 454) Sighting in a new scope using my standard hunting recipe, printed a clover leaf, all touching at the initial 40 yard sight in.
They are tough bullets, that hold together well. Iíve personally taken many large animals with these bullets, ( Moose, Bear, Bison , Boar) and always try to break them down with shoulder shots. I have only recovered 2 bullets, as they mostly go on thru, even on shoulder shots.
