Is .40S&W really that much less than 10mm? Would either be a good woods defense firearm? Let’s find out! Alaskan BallisticsI’m just a regular guy who likes guns, hunting, and ballistics.
Doing some testing with the 550 and the 525 Soft lead bullets in ballistic material at +2000 FPS and also water jugs Leverguns 50Most of our videos are about lever action rifles and other cowboy guns, including carbine and shotguns, sixguns, black powder, hunting, outdoors, and primitive skills.
If I could back up before I started this ‘T2’ project and start over…well….I would not. Like I said earlier, ‘fails’ bring you information that is and will be critical to your success. “Embrace your ‘fails’, learn from them…” CharlieBrassStufferBorn in 1950…HS grad, some college, no degrees, served in the US Marine Corps, educated there […]
This is the last piece of the puzzle to come together, selecting the moulds to start out with… Don’t be alarmed if you don’t see something you wanted here, there’s a lot of ground to cover and a lot of different styles of HP moulds to use in the future test. CharlieBrassStufferBorn in 1950…HS grad, […]
A random test of a couple HP’s I had in stock. A practice run to get the testing and documentation down, also to try running the Chrony in front of the Test Tube for accurate speeds of each HP tested. The video is on the long side but there’s information I discuss here that is […]
The final fill and actual first test of a cast HP. It’s been a fun build…this summer we will see a lot of this test tube jig and also see some very interesting discoveries about casting and loading various Hollow Point Cast Projectiles.

This is a test tube for testing cast HP projectiles. For years I’ve used a much smaller test pipe, a 10 foot 4″ PVC conduit and it’s been difficult in many aspects…now we build a test tube we can work with much easier.

This is an educational video that I made about ricochets and spalling and the science behind these phenomena. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of self-reliance. As host of TheIdahoanShow on […]

This is the first time, to my knowledge…that a Chronograph has ever been used to clock the speed of a cast Hollow Point ‘EXITING’ a jug of water after expansion. The projectile entered the jug at 908 Feet Per Second and exited at 450 FPS. Now that may not seem significant to many of you […]
This video shows the results of testing 3 rifles, to determine their penetration capabilities. Looks like the single-shot “buffalo rifle” distinguishes itself! The Way to Native ChroniclesYou could say I’m a Christian of Calvinist bent, and not a crowd-follower.
I was able to score some 130gr Federal HST Wadcutters used in Federal Micro HST 38 Special +P self defense ammo. I have tested the 38 Special +P and it performs really well in Clear Ballistics gel. My curiosity lead me to perform this test with 357 Magnum as there is very little data available […]
If you recall my last article, I had too much expansion of a HP due to the softness, due to the low BHN of of the boolit metal I used. The Penta over-expanded and came right to the edge of losing its weight from the soft lead shearing off the edges of the mushroom. This […]

Welcome back, reloaders! Let’s get down too it. I was browsing through Brownells website the other day and decided to try out the famous Forster Micrometer Seating dies and do a review. I’ve heard a lot of hype around Micrometer dies in general and especially this one. If you follow any of […]
