Series Reboot? Introduction: Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Testing

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 http://www.hollowpointmold.com/
The 44 Keith SWC mold is the “MP 432-256 PB HP 4 cav” mold from https://www.mp-molds.com/
