Martina Dejaquiz: another very informative video.... i like it & thanks!
Myles Nicholas: Powder coated bullets are all the rage.
koolkitty8989: Fun fact: a lot of commercial (soft/pure) lead bullets aren't cast, but extruded. (this is especially true for .22LR, which is probably /one/ reason you don't see hard-alloy .22LR around at all ... more investment than just re-using existing tooling/molds, also possibly why noone's put out die-cast zinc bullets for the lead-free market, given those plastic/resin composite copper things CCI uses seem like they could be extruded as do the tin alloy ones Winchester uses)
OldHemiHead: Nice informative and short video from Hickok, almost as many comments on the 'rail' as the bullets! Having come from a family with a lot of Railroad background, it brought back memories; dad had a rail in the garage, Grandpa had rail SECTIONS laying in his back yard next to the garden...But was wondering why Hickok45 chose to hammer those bullets on a rail? With his level of marksmanship, why didn't he simply hold the sample bullets in his left hand and blast them with his trusty .44 S&W 29-2 in his right hand? "I got my old Smith here... all loaded up with some 340 grain hardened bear loads... let's just see what they'll do to this .45 jacketed soft thing..."
Ken Christianson: Thanks for this video. There is always something new to learn. You are a good teacher.
henerymag: Thinking of using around 12gr of Trail Boss with soft lead cast bullets in my .303 British with some Alox coating on them. Pretty sure it would be slow enough to avoid leading. Gas checks on the bullets of course.
Jacob S.: Antimony that's added to the lead is what makes lead hardER. Wheel weights that are lead have antimony in them that's why when you try to bend them they will snap.
IFoundWaldo: you bangin them bullets on a john boat anchor
Ronald Pagan: I recovered a few .40 cal, 180 gr fmjs that were stopped by sand and they looked perfect. the copper was a little dull, I guess they got "sandblasted" ; )
First Last: looks like a piece of railroad track to me
pejnismiggle: I feel like you could rock a serious mustache.
