Your brother must be a guy's friend's dad from this thread...he was also claiming that a slug wears out a shotgun barrel quicker that shotshells........

Yeah, kickin' back at the bar,

swilling beer,

repeating crap you heard secondhand,

that somebody'd have to be dumber

than a bag of hammers to believe.

Must be Friday in America...

fmj is a term to mean that the jacket (metal, but copper metal), just like all other jacketed projos, completely encapsulates the projo (unlike hp's or soft points)

unknowing people get confused by the word "metal"

What about jacketed hollow points? Why do they need to wear a jacket?

Especially now, its too hot!
