really lw bullets, hollowbased bullets, at very high velocities, but you ALL claim this or that about it. YOU could make videos about making them, since all you need is a drill and dremel, and it wouldnt take an hour to melt the lead out of some ball bullets, replace it with epoxy and load them. since you all shoot SO often, and have SO much money, why dont you chrono such loads, pussies? cause you cant get the lead out, that's why. Of either part. of the equation. Ony one of you is likely to have a chronograph, but I've got one. What does THAT tell you. You're all just a bunch of dry-snitches. In prison, you'd be dead.

I have an use a chronograph quite a bit, it stays in the truck along with the tripod for it. Also Ranson rest, several types of bags an rests along with a spotting scope. I see no reason on earth to waste my time melting insides out of bullets or cutting them up with a dremel or hacksaw. Rather be casting, loading an shooting.

Lol. Project much!

I own a chronograph. I just just don’t care about your bullets. Literally. I don’t give a sh*t about them. I don’t need them, don’t want them, they’re useless to me. They don’t offer anything over what I currently use.

You can whine about your pet bullet. But I don’t care about it. Even if it does everything you say, still don’t care.

I have no need or use for it.

I’ll be out hunting, in the field doing real stuff, while you imagine doing stuff.

So, you’re wrong again, more than one of us has a chronograph. Do you get tired of being wrong so often?

I wouldn’t be stupid enough to end up in prison. Making claims about prison isn’t exactly an endorsement of you, is it?

You have zero credibility, even less when you rant about what we can or cannot do.

I can go to a gun store and buy a firearm, can you? I’m going to be loading a bunch of .308 Ammo and then I plan to go shoot some of it, at a range, suppressed.

Go ahead and rant some more...

I just bought a new gun yesterday,but have the darned three day wait to pick it up. Another Glock 17, a Gen5. The Gen5 is a lot better than the Gen4

Melvin, I make ammo for competition, and if required hunting. When I build a new load, the first thing I do is chrono it. I spend at least 2 months of a year, doing load development in multiple calibers. I wouldn't make bullets the way you do simply because I think it is not only stupid, but also a waste of time. I can build 10x the quantity of ammo in the time you waste and better quality. Is that it Melvin, you are jealous of us because we have some money in the bank? I'm sorry I guess giving bj's and letting bubba have his way with your nether parts in prison, just didn't pay that well. But again it was your choice.

ONE of you have ANY experience at really lw bullets, hollowbased bullets, at very high velocities, but you ALL claim this or that about it.

You're wrong. I’ve experimented with extremely lightweight bullets, and posted the results when I did so. I’ve dredged up those results for you multiple times, as recently as last week.

Chronograph?
I'm on my second one.

This one is the okay but I miss my old Chrony never should have sold it.
My chrony died a death after 20 years of use. I replaced it with an RCBS Ammo Master (cheap made in china junk, parts stared breaking within 3 years).

Melvin, didn't I tell you about my .400 corbon load just the other day?

I’m sorry but nobody can actually own a chronograph, just like nobody can shoot at a range at 1,000 yards. And nobody can take game at long range, except maybe that 12 year old.

So far Boati is batting zero...

Here you go. I'll post the link again, since you can't seem to find it. It's been right here for over 13 years despite all your yelling about nobody having done it.

It has specifics on how I modified them, how I loaded them, what guns I shot them out of, how they penetrated barriers, what velocities were obtained with them, etc. All kinds of info that are specifically on a subject that you claim to be an expert on, yet remains a subject on which you have never posted actual tabulated results.

I can't help but find it both interesting and hypocritical that in all those years of claiming to love the subject, you've never posted a single time in the one thread that specifically documents someone having done it rather than being just someone pontificating about it.

Here you go. It's so old that in a few places the punctuation is distorted, but I knew that if I cleaned it up you'd accuse me of editing or falsifying it; so here it is in its ancient state: https://armslocker.com/reloading/36569-reloading-extremely-light-bullets.html

See how easy you make it, John? Years-old proof that I actually HAVE done the epoxy bullet thing, chronographed them, barrier-tested them, and posted specific, measured results of what they did. I personally didn't find them worth pursuing, since my needs can be met by normal ammunition; as most anybody's can.

You talk about how easy it is to do (and it is). Yet as easy as it is, you have never provided any similar detailed, documented results of any such testing, yet you still try to claim expert status on the subject. Interesting.

Want to know how to easily get 1,100 ft/lbs of energy from a 45 Colt load...?

I showed how I did it here: https://armslocker.com/reloading/36569-reloading-extremely-light-bullets.html

And it doesn't even exceed book limits. Hodgdon shows a max charge of 10.0 grains of Titegroup with a 240 grain Sierra JHC bullet. Using the same charge but with a much lighter projectile of only 82 grains clocked 2,459 fps from my gun, with more than 3" of wood penetration at impact.

- That's 30% more muzzle energy than a 10" 223 shooting 55-grain FMJ.

- With a bullet that has right at 50% more mass.

- And is also more than 400% bigger in surface area.

So not only does it exceed your non-demonstrated handgun uber-bullets, on a round-for-round basis it beats out even your shorty AR. It's got more energy, more mass, and more surface area than the 223 bullet; exceeding the 223 shorty AR in every measurable aspect except long range performance, which you've repeatedly said doesn't matter.

So you see, it's not that we can't figure out how to make really light bullets and launch them really fast. We can do it, and at least one of us HAS demonstrably done so. We just don't care to dwell & fixate on it. Normal ammo does just fine. At least for actual use it's fine; I confess it's probably not as much fun for daydreaming about.

John - want to know how to VERY easily not only get a handgun bullet to generate over 1,100 ft/lbs of energy with a completely safe load, but to have it actually do something that you've tried to claim (with no proof) for years?

It would be very easy. Taking very little time, very little work, and very little thought. I'll show you in the very-old "extremely light bullets" thread...

I already dealt with that. It's irrelevant cause nobody's going to carry huge, heavy old revolvers and you wont get the slide to cycle with anything but bullseeye. i told you alll that over 15 years ago.
