  • bullets loaded backwards.........thought this interesting---Results.

    results were not what I would have expected. Learn something new everyday.
    ALASKA is a "HARD COUNTRY for OLDMEN". (But if you live it wide'ass open, balls'to the wall, the pedal floored, full throttle, it is a delightful place, to finally just sit-back and savor those memories while sipping Tequila).

My results pretty much mimic the results found here

      I think old Cooper Landing gun smith Harold Johnson did that with .50 cal. BMG bullets after he turned them down in a lathe. He stuffed them in a blown out .348 Win. case I think was called the .50 Alaskan, not to be confused with the .450 Alaskan on a blown out .348. Said they sailed through brown bears, I bet they did.

        An old now expired friend used to load em backwards in his 222 for squirrels and rabbits. He was also known to have deer in the freezer earlier than the rest of us. He once told me that his backwards bullets would maintain a straight line through a deer better than a FMJ bullet. My advice to him was to wait until December and then he could shoot them with slugs like everybody else did. Not a good friend, by the way.
