Series Reboot

The Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Test was the series that brought me to YouTube.  In February of last year I started my YouTube channel, and the primary reason was so that I could post videos concerning the extensive tests I planned to do with cast hollow point bullet.

Most of the videos from the beginning of that series were hidden as a result of the recent YouTube policy changes. For the nearly 40 YouTube videos I recently hid, I have decided to post “teasers” on YouTube, and then provide a link in the description and comment section of those teasers to the full length videos which will be hosted on other sites.

Introduction:  Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Testing

From the original video description, February 17, 2017:
This is the introductory video to a series I am starting – a long experiment testing powder coated cast lead hollow point bullets made from various alloys and fired at various velocities.

Join me as I attempt to discover:  what takes place when powder coated hollow points are fired in the .44 and .38/.357 at various velocity levels?  What are the effects of varying bullet hardness at these velocities?

The Lee 358-158-RF mold was hollow pointed by Erik Ohlen at
The 44 Keith SWC mold is the “MP 432-256 PB HP 4 cav” mold from

This is perfect as I was just thinking about getting into cast hollow points
I will be following this closely


Yes, will be very interesting and useful data… Thanks for all the hard work… Steve
