    That HSM HP was not as tough as I thought it would be, it got through one encyclopedia and lodged under the cover of the next one;
    however, much bullet was lost in the process.

    Tried a GECO .357 158 gr FMJ
    same penetration, as the bullet was found in the same place;
    but, the second book was torn all the way to the back cover and while severely damaged the bullet did seem to not shed much material..

    During the Zumwalt era that stache would be really conservative. :roll2:
    If a Liberal throws a hand grenade at you, pick it up, pull the pin, and throw it back at them.

    I say, they didn't half do some work to the inside of your 4WD while they had it in the shop.

    Back to 1/2 gal milk jugs and .357.

    More by coincidence than by design, I ended up with some of those 158 gr I had been shooting and some
    R-P 125 gr SJHP in the Blackhawk.

    I missed with the 158 gr and when the R-P ammo came up, there was a noticeable louder bang and recoil.
    One jug flattened out and flew in the bushes and the other was well ripped up. The water in the jugs turned into a cloud
    instead of just leaking out as with the 158 gr HP.

    It is now hunting season, so, I need to wear a orange vest to go out in the forest in case I am attacked by a squirrel and need to defend myself.

    I had to try it.
    The R-P 125 gr SJHP penetrates farther in the same books as did that 158 gr HP I had been shooting.
    Bullet did break up badly.

    So Ned, if you shot a Kindle how many Virtual E books/pages will 125 and 158 grainers shoot through? :tooth:

    Don't use either one to pot a squirrel for lunch unless they're too tough to chew out there.:tooth:
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    It is deer season, so, carrying a .44mag
    haven't seen any deer, just forestry workers.

    They want to open up the understory near the forest edge; but, by fire
    that means smoke in town.
    They control burn as needed already.

    Went out to shoot some of that woosie .44 spl I complained about before.

    Anyway, I almost ran over a king snake in the dirt road; then while fording one of the low flooded spots,
    a bog turtle jumped out of nowhere and almost caused me to upend in the water as it tried to swim in front of me
    in the tire track I was following.

    The ammo shot fine, just HOHUM.

    The latest 10mm thread got me thinking 10mm, so I broke out a 10mm and went to the woods.

    Filled a couple of jugs at the last branch crossing and headed to the end of the road and found that a dead tree had come down and blocked the road.
    While I was clearing the tree, one of my jugs fell over and drained; so. back to the culvert at the branch crossing I went.

    The 10mm is so accurate that I only got off 2 shots and the trip was over.

    On the way out I saw a squirrel in the road; but. could not get off a shot.

    If you would have got a shot off and hit that squirrel, that 10mm wouldn't left much to scrape off the road except some snacks fer the buzzards.

    That is possibly right unless I got lucky and only hit the head.
    I shot one with a ball .38 spl once and that did not do a messy job, just passed through the lungs.

    Rode back out in the forest today with the intention of shooting a gallon veg oil jug.

    Got half way out and saw a fella with a shotgun walking out of the woods, so, I stopped to chat.
    The guy was deaf which made conversation difficult, he must have been deaf from birth
    because he was hard to understand.

    We had a short conversation about stuff such as he had running shoes on and the road was flooded and
    it was probably the fault of a beaver or two.

    He had tunnel vision on my Redhawk once he noticed it, so, I said so long and moved on.

    Went down to the end and tested the jug with .44 mag flat nose. The jug is tough and not a good choice for
    a big splash when hit with such a load.

    Still, it was more fun than going to an arts and craft show at the Catholic Church which we did this afternoon.

    Saw this guy and a woman on that road in warm weather ; both are deaf, she can speak better and reads lips better.

    Good examples of what it could like for those yo-yos who don't wear hearing protection and think 'I'm only gonna shoot a .22 or a few rounds from my 30-30' ...................hearing loss is accumulative.
