405 gain lead bullet from US reloading
I purchased the 405 gain lead bullet for my 1895 J M model Marlin. I attached gas checks from hornady. 5 shots, inside an inch at 100 yards. Shot into water jugs from 20 feet, (recieved a shower) bullets passed thru 7 and found in the 8th.  With gas checks, weighing  421 grains to begin with. After firing weight 420.3 grains. I repeated the test with a 1 in pine board between jug 1 and 2. The bullet stopped again in the 8th jug. 420.1 grains recovered weight. Both expanded to 90.4 caliber and 91.3 caliber respectively.  Never in my 70 years of hunting and shooting have I ever had bullets perform like this. I cannot wait to see what this combination will do on a Rocky Mountain Bull Elk.
Best bullet I have ever shot !
Excellent job US reloading.
