    Why just single Underwood out? Why not Buffalo Bore, etc... sounds like someone has something personal against some of these companies. He asked a question and I supplied the answer he wanted. Not give him unrelated information.

    Brass Fetcher. Not much to be said about how they dig into the Science of ballistics and the formulas in here are above my understanding. If you start watching at 7:30 into the video he lays it out there his thoughts on what self defense round to go with. Basically stated "the hardest hitting round you can control".

    He was looking for some fun and boom with his Ruger like we all are every so often and those are the two best choices. Proof of that:

    I had some BB .357 rounds I got just to see what they were all about. I then proceeded to fire them from a 2" snubbie. It was NOT pleasant! :shocked: Not as bad as it coulda been but not something I want to do with regularity.

    Those BB rounds going off at 1700fps leave a distinct impression when you shoot them. I generally only do one cylinder-full (5) and view it as penance for something I might have done in the past and don't remember. :dunno:

    When I did my Chronograph testing of them it was shaking stuff off the bench.

    I'm a S&H though, as I sold my 4" and have the 6" for defense with a Crimson Trace grip. Yes I feel safe and it doesn't feel heavy or awkward plus eats recoil a little better.

    A Crossfire Black Max or a Silvertip with a nickel case and CCI primer?

    I used to think that an all silver colored bullet would be the ultimate confidence booster while out on patrol for zombies or werewolves, but now I am leaning toward an all black bullet. I mean, c'mon. How cool is that? Plus it looks like a real *** kicker...lol.

    I kid, of course, I love when people try new ammo and can give us results. Thanks for the info.

    Underwood is better and costs less.

    Kevin makes some great and affordable ammo. He doesn't make a single all copper round or do Black Oxide coatings though and therefore couldn't get any of these there. Buffalo Bore offers the Barnes all copper however in standard RP Remington brass.

    Good to know, thanks! And last I checked, BB uses Starline brass, but I could be wrong. I got the info from YouTube after all.

    I got a chuckle when I saw the numbers for the 44 magnum were from a 7 1/2 Super Black Hawk. Not my ideal CC piece. The numbers generated are easily and safely attained with handloads.

    Redhawk 7.5" but I agree nothing crazy. It's actually not too bad though for an all copper which is longer to get the weight.

    Buffalo Bore has been using whatever they can get their hands on for bullets and brass (this crunch) lately.

    The Buffalo Bore box shows states a full metal jacket bullet but shows a JHP round. Is this the bullet that came from that box?

    They list several types with a check mark next to contents.

    Oh okay. The little picture of the guy holding the gun had the gun positioned so it looked like a check mark next to the 200 grain load. My mistake.

    Did we ever determine what make those 180 JHP's from Buffalo Bore were?

    Thanks. They aren't good for the woods, but look like a helluva expander.

    It looks like the new bullets are something different than the Sierras:
