Neat. Is that at your new house/ property? Near Chatanooga, wasn't it? Did you ever get a satisfactory resolution on the well issues?

A semi-jacketed hollow point in a 44mag also would have done just as well.

Hell yeah HC, except I'm partial to my .357 with an 8" barrel.:D

Besides, some trees get fungi, some get bugs, and some get lead poisoning.;)

I have a 5" 357, the only thing I have in 8" is a SW 500. Also have a 5" in 460SW.

That 500 can throw a 700 grain projectile at 1200fps. The 460 can throw a 250 grain hollow point at near 2kfps, that 357 is my comp wheelie.

That 500 sounds like a cannon Carl!:O

Is it fun to shoot or does it try to break your hand? Bet the cost of 700gr shells is outrageous as hell.:|:

700 grain bullets.

Thats 1/10th of a pound. More than 1 ounce of lead.

INSANE.


I have a Colt Python with a 6" barrel (357 mag) and its NIIIIICE. Almost too nice...
