I'd like to make hollow point ammo from standard ball ammo. Has anyone done this? I'm open to any idea's or pointers you may have.
After reading this, I went to imfdb and found this info:
LOLMathilde adjusts the scope, after test-firing. Her shots were a bit off to the left and for some reason turning the elevation knob instead of the windage remedies this.
Yep, or breath the dust coming off your lathe or drill, or forget to to wash your hands, or your clothes before eating, drinking, smoking, brushing your teeth etc.You're not going to get lead poisoning from drilling holes in lead... you have to ingest it.
LOL...exactly. Believe me though, Placido makes the movie worth watching, and it's not all that terrible otherwise. There were some definite "firearms" goofs which could have been easily avoided if the film crew/staff/director would have consulted with an expert considering the subject matter of the film. I honestly didn't even catch the elevation/windage knob goof, but this one was obvious and I got a laugh out if it while watching the film (it has been on HBO for the past week or so)...After reading this, I went to imfdb and found this info:
He refers to the gun as a Ruger M14, which is a slight goof since the M14 is a completely different gun. Mathilde (Thekla Reuten), the customer, also asks the gun's muzzle velocity, to which Jack states "about 360 miles an hour". This is a goof since muzzle velocities are measured in feet, or meters, per second. It wouldn't be that bad if his statement didn't translate into 528 feet per second; not even near the muzzle velocity of a real .223 round.
I regularly huff the dust coming off of my mill as I drill holes...Yep, or breath the dust coming off your lathe or drill, or forget to to wash your hands, or your clothes before eating, drinking, smoking, brushing your teeth etc.
I cast and load lead, I am not lead averse, but to create an environment where you are repeatedly leaning in to work on a piece of lead that you are drilling is not something I'd recommend - and we haven't even mentioned eye protection.........
That's why you should watch this comedy, ummmm, I mean action-packed drama thriller at some point. Your questions will be answered when you see Jack (played by Clooney) sniping cat tails growing in a pond from about 75 ft. away. No more doubts about the Ruger Mini-14 being the sniper weapon of choice!!Now, I'm just a hobbyist and don't really know anything about this whole sniper thing but…….
How is the story supported by a professional international hit man selecting a Ruger Mini-14?
I mean really?
Oh, I don't know, I guess it's just a movie not a training film.
Ahhh.....Wouldn't that be the prosecution?If you drill out FMJ's and make hollowpoints, just dont use them for self defense. I could see a defense attotney team tearing you to shreds about "making your own devistating hollowpoint ammo, designed only to kill"....
I have been a reloader for over 20 years, but I make it a point to use factory JHP's when I carry.
