    reloading '06

    just got done loading some Barnes x bullets, all copper for deer season in my 30-06. Really neat bullets, they exand out in a 4 petal mushroom that is razor sharp. I tested a few on 1 gal. water jugs (full of water)and they torn em nealy in half. I am expecting good results on a deer (if 1 comes by). The manufacturer claims 100% weight retention after impact. Wonder if they are gonna start making defensive caliber bullets too?

    Don't forget too the XTP's for potent calibers in handgun - tho best kept for hunting use. I haven't used Barnes as yet - mostly 165 Noslers for .308 rifle.

    I think honestly I still rate as a great expander for handguns the Speer Gold Dot - it peels back very well and symetrically with almost total weight retention.

    Oh sorry Rocky - this is about aught six - oops .............. oh and defensives as well - that's OK then.
