And also what he shoots in his MLer. How did he arrive at that conclusion? Chap

I have no idea howBryce Towsleyarrived at that conclusion. Since his livelihood depends on saying nice things about expensive stuff, there is a good chance he is in someone's pocket.With all due respect, I have killed more hogs and probably about as many deer as Bryce Towsley. It matters not to me what he says or does.

I have a lot of respect for you Falcon, in fact my folder on SST/SW has a couple of things you said about SWayear or so ago. You arrived at your conclusion about SWvia experience (you have that it is plain to see), which is a great teacher to us all. As for Bryce Towsley, he wrote the MLing Chapter in "Rifle Bullets for the Hunter A Definitive Study", he has written on MLing his whole life. I have seen a lot of articles by him in Black Powder Hunting and Shooting, Guns and Ammo and several other magazines. So I am truly sorry that it does not matter to you what he says 'cause I think what he says is important. To me he says a lot. He wrote the study on powders in last year's American Rifleman. I am not attacking you personally, but I am sure it feels like since I am talking about "your baby"--the SW.
Best Wishes Falcon,
Chap

Indeed he did. I refer tothat article pretty often.

Hey, it ain't my baby. Would not think of using the 250 grain SST on elk or even big mule deer.My hunting partneris lathe turningsome of his specialsoft copper,hollow based, hollow point .430bullets for our elk hunt this fall.

Glad that you have a good grounding in math and are working on this stuff. Keep up thegood work.

Yep, thats my 250 grain SST that fell out of a hog I took with my Encore at a range of 192 yards. Paced it off as 190+ paces and later measured it with a laser transit. Charge was 90 grains of JSG. Bullet broke two ribs going in, tore up the liver and sent fragments through the diaphragm.

I've hunted so damn much with a muzzleloader that I sometimes cannot handle a repeating rifle really well. Recentlyshot a big sow with my AR-15 at a distance of 25 yards head on. Should have done a double tap. The bullet hit her above the eye socket and she squealed and took off while I dumbly looked on.Got a quartering away shot at about75 yards and killed her.

Cant ask for much more than that.

I like recovering my bullets to see how they held up. Its an interesting to be able to take note of the internal damage, inspect the recovered bullet and fine tune for next season.

I love the MLer also. Most of my buddies think I am crazy to go to Colorado (FG area near Meeker) with a single shot MLer in rifle season. But I feel that is my most accurate gun and with a 300g Barnes Origonal pushed at about 2400 fps with my Savage and 67g of 4198, it is a very lethal load, from what I have read onDougs Savage forum. Much more than a 180g 30-06 going 2700 fps.

Exactly, most of us would have no idea at what the optimum load is for a PB 295g, until you did your test and showed how they packed out.You couple those pictures with your experiece of internal damage and you get some confidence in load and bullet integrity.This allows one to swithch or adjust load for optimum expansion without fragmentation.
Best Wishes,
Chap
