A Hard Discussion – Determining BHN for the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Test

This is the seventh video in the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Testing series, which is a long experiment testing powder coated cast lead hollow point bullets made from various alloys and fired at various velocities. In this video I have a little fun using various methods to measure the hardness of the lead alloys used to cast the bullets that will be used for this test.

Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Testing Series – Now Entirely Found on The Reloaders Network

I set up this website, The Reloaders Network, 11 months ago, and as soon as I did I started posting all of my old video library here.  I spaced that out over a few months and I completed that last September.  There has been one large segment of my videos missing though - my powder coated cast lead hollow point tests. I have posted about a dozen of the videos from that series that dealt with casting and reloading, but to date I have not posted any of the nearly three dozen hollow point ballistic gel tests.  I have remedied that today.

Loading .38 Special +P for the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Test

I'm reloading the hollow point and solid bullets for the first two tests in the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Testing series. This series is a long experiment testing powder coated cast lead hollow point bullets made from various alloys and fired at various velocities. In this video I go through the process of figuring out the Unique powder charge for the .38 Special +P, and then I load the bullets.

Loading .44 Special for the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Test

(The video was originally posted to YouTube on April 26, 2017.) I'm reloading the first .44 Special hollow point for the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Testing series. This series is a long experiment testing powder coated cast lead hollow point bullets made from various alloys and fired at various velocities. In this video I go through the process of figuring out the Unique powder charge for the Keith SWC .44 Special, and then I load the bullets.
