quoted from above link:

Quote:
John Ross wrote in 1999..."High velocity causes astonishing penetration in things that one would intuitively expect to resist same. A .220 Swift at ten feet will not reach the second side of an empty beer can...the same Swift load will chop a 3/8" diameter hole in 1/2" mild steel plate...a nylon bullet (especially a pointy one) at 3000 FPS out of a .38 Special will defeat a vest that laughs at .357 Magnum 158 grain ammo at 1350 FPS....
that makes no sense and sounds like myth making to me. im pretty sure the 38special is not capable of pushing anything 3000fps. and a beer can is not armor to anything that a 220 swift may be loaded with short of cottonballs... i would have to see some videos of that with chronographs to believe those claims.

Yes I don't know where how they come up with some of these so called facts???...But it does seem like the (EPA) is on the old save the earth (bandwagon) and they will make everyone shoot some other type of bullets before long???...just saying...look out for some kind of change before long...

its a longtime liberal dream to ban either bullets or guns.

I don't mind them banning the lead as long as they make depleted uranium readily available.

Most any material can and has been used to make bullets - but lead has always been simply the best and most efficient & versatile.
Non-lead bullets? Kinda like non-steel knives. Possible, but they just don't work as well.....
