Good idea, it would probably be less explosive that way.

My wife got me to watch the Twilight Movies, but I haven't seen this new Teen Wolf series or even heard of it. So, in the spirit of being honest and with your personal knowledge of its cheesiness, you are admitting to watching this show?


This pic needs to be n this thread too...

I caught about 10 minutes of it over the weekend. It was a little to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" for my taste...

The Lone Ranger used silver 45 long colt bullets and rode a horse named "Silver" too. "Hi-yo Silver, Away!"

This silver bullet is on display at the Smithsonian...


So, now I want some 38 special for my cowboy Ruger Vaquero guns too!

Winchester Silvertip bullets are aluminum jacketed-some are regular copper jackets that are nickel plated. No company has ever made/sold silver bullets.
Silver is much harder than lead.

Wouldn't making those come dangerously close to the same concept of the old arcane round that are bronze and instead of a slight curve to a point they are just chamfered to a hard point ?

Which I'm pretty sure is illegal, or am I reading to much into it

No, you're just exerting too much thought on a ridiculous thread.

The 30-30 aren't silver, the 300WM aren't silver.

I seriously doubt loading a few silver bullets as a novelty would get you crosswise with the Federal Prosecutors.

The Winchester "Silver Tip" rifle bullets were early versions of the modern ballistic tip/bronze point using Aluminum or nickle plated points ( or nose caps in the case of the .30-30
