Doug Covert: Hickok45, you're truly the best I really enjoy your videos, I am an enthusiast and wish I had the $$$ to shoot like nuts. What area of the country is that? You shoot at that back woods range and I really really love that, reminds me of my childhood where I used to shoot too. Of course not the same place, but we had woods like it...
wlentz1: standard train rail
albertapeet: I like that Anvil . I see that around here on occasion as well , maybe I will harvest a chunk for myself
Michael A1: Hickok, Another reason to use hard lead is so the lead doesn't lead up the barrel. soft lead will sort of strip in the barrel depositing lead in the rifling.
darktrooper4: looks like you got a pieced of rail! those make great targets especially if you put a clay disk or full water bottle behind the hole.
Scott McCandless: that makeshift anvil reminds me of a bit of i-beam but i not sure if that is what it truely is
.357Addict: I come back to this video every few months to see how many people actually think our friend Hickok did not know he had a hunk of railroad track. I sometimes wonder if he chuckled to himself after making the comment about not knowing the source of his anvil.
op3l: Just found out about these older videos. Love the information!
Wa Rid: A section of old railroad track
Goldeader: Rail road rack
R G DEGREGORI: Come on Hickock you completely missed some major differences between hard ad soft. Hard can be pushed to greater velocities without leading the barrel. Soft will deform to engage rifling where dimensions are off standard. You didn't discuss gas checks at all. Gas checks are required if you want higher velocities. Hard carat lose their hardness over time!
I was disappointed in this video but still love you man. Randy
Mandrake: So... are hard cast bullets more likely to ricochet than soft ones?
K S Harris: Weren't you afraid those bullets would go off by hitting them with a hammer?...tsuj gnikoj
no dillinger: it's the end section of a rail-road rail,they also work great in the fire place if cut to a fitted length and have an upright piece tacked on to stop rolling logs that's some hard burning steel as i recall .let's see now your in a southern state at your age and don't recognize a rail-road rail,my bs meter is in the red,your blowing smoke under our skirts now ;)
Charles Auger: it smaller than a train track, it looks like tracks for mining.
