    About those plastic bullets:

    Found this on the back cover of the July-August 1970 issue of "Handloader" magazine.

    Some years back, I scored over a hundred of these magazines, in their publisher's binders The downside was that they came from the deceased estate of a long-term mentor and friend.

    The entire series was released on CD ROM a few years back, and that makes searching faster, but it lacks the tactile and random nature of "tree-ware".

    I have a box of these in 38 Special. Picked them up from an auction.

    Lit one off in the basement with a S&W 36. Maybe 15 or 20 feet from a cinder block wall.
    I can assure you, these are not toys! If a person was standing where that wall was, it would definitely ruin their day.
    Pretty clear point of impact on that wall!

    I made my own out of wax back in the '80s and shot a beer can at 10 feet, almost tore it in half.
