FUN!Suggest you try it with some 220 grain round noses, or maybe some .30-30 150-170gr flat or round noses, depending on what you're trying to do.In lead bullet casting, we get to deal with the compromises and paradoxes of alloy hardness for increased speed vs. softer stuff for lower velocities that MIGHT expand on impact vs. velocities too low for ANYTHING to reliably expand.As such a harder, flat-nosed bullet is a very popular option in that game, as it will still do a fair job of disrupting tissue. The blunt tipped bullets kind of get you to the same place. If they expand. cool. If not, it still makes a good fist to punch with.Your 147 grain / M80 ball bullet may or may not tumble on impact, but I wouldn't count on much of a terminal effect from it at those low speeds. Still, a great and cheap gallery load!
