One other small problem with this idea,mercury dissolves lead so you might want to use them fairly quickly.

Did anyone else read this and think "boogers!"? I mean, not much would be grosser than having another animal's snot bore into your flesh at high speed while it rides the front of a chunk of lead.

I prefer to fill my HP's with silver. Sure it's expensive but if I'm prepping for Zombies I may as well be ready for that chance encounter with a Wherewolf!

After all, I am in Washington State with those freaky Teens from the Twilight Saga. And before anyone asks, yes, I do have a teenage daughter.

Tack

Why, of course I fill the cavities of my hollowpoints with Plutonium Nitrate. Ya see, the plutonium is crushed beyond critical mass at the moment of impact, and the lead acts as a reflector for neutrons, with the result there is a teeny tiny little nuclear explosion, creating a wound channel the size of a grapefruit. However, the burst of gamma radiation emitted kills everything within 21 feet instantly. We used them all the time when I was a SealRangerSniperScoutRecondoDeltaAirCommandoSAS Operator for the CIA.





Ladies and gentlemen- if there was a more effective means of making a bullet work, do you THINK it just MIGHT be possible that one of the commercial ammo makers that spends a LOT of money on R&D would be doing it?

You might also look back to the Hoxie Ammunition Company of Chicago from 1907 to the '30s. Their bullets were characterized by a small steel ball embedded in the tip to aid in expansion on contact.

In the same era there were large bore rifle bullets that held a .22 blank inserted into the cavity- to fire on impact.

None of them worked especially well.

Um, on a serious note...it is illegal to modify ammunition. At least I think I remember reading it somewhere.
