Did this video help you?

Marlin 45/70: Can you make soft cast bullets?

HillbillyNitro USA: You need some of those "Magic Bullets" 😉 Soft lead FMJ that acts like a hard cast...

OZYMANDIAS: It’s part of a rail from a train track.

pseudopetrus: Thanks for explaining hard cast bullets

Wolf Man: Rail road track I have one too they are excellent table top anvils

GR45: That, sir, is a train track :-)

ferna2294: Remember folks, PENETRATION IS KEY. Go hard cast lead.

Bernerd Backstabber: It's a hunk of Railroad.

svtirefire: I found as a kid that deep snow stops most bullets totally intact. I used to look for bullets I had shot behind the house after the snow melted.

Benjamin Hughey: Ah man I was cracking up when you were explaining where you got your 'anvil'. Classic stuff. Great video Hickok

Justin DeMatteo: 61 people who disliked this video were killed in a train derailment.

Norman McNeal: Lee’s reloading book is quite extensive about pressure and cast bullet hardness. He gives tables to equate velocity with lead hardness. Using his information, you can load proper expanding lead to a desired velocity. He also explains leading barrels and obturation

Maxid1: I'm impressed that you were able to consistantly miss your soft cast fingers with that hardcast hamner. Your accuracy isn't only in firearms. My Dad, for the longest time, swaged his own bullets. Then I think he got tired of cleaning lead out of the barrels and he started to buy bullets for reloading.

John Bailey: So as I watch I guess you can use straight lead bullets ? I shoot 38/357 hand guns 6inch or less in barrel size. I have started watching and trying to get as much information as I can before screwing up too much.

Ben Wright: “Empty walls” ha! Yeah right!

Razorback Piper Guy: Hickok, I know this is an old video, but maybe you'll still see this question.
Have you ever delved into the world of casting your own bullets?
I have been for a few years now, using lead wheel weights I've bought from tire shops.
I'm loading .45 Colt for about $70/1000 using my own cast projectiles. That's not factoring in the cost of brass of course.

Sniperproze: What is cheaper, hard or soft lead bullets

Andrewlikesguns: Dude this video made me want to wash my hands. Love the info for sure. All heavy metals are toxic in large enough doses but lead is water soluble so the moisture on your hands can just take it from the bullet and it is hard to forget and eat something.

Troy Authement: Could u melt the lead down and use a mold to reload?

Ken Hasard: Great video! I didn't see in the comments that that piece or rail is a worn piece of used rail. You can tell by the ridge on the side of the top or it. That ridge would form on the inner side of the rail from heavy use, the many wheels passing over the rail deforms it the same way that hammer deforms the bullets into a mushroom. I'm catching up on the older videos on this channel, I think they are very well made and provide information that is explained in a way to be easy to understand.
