Wonder what a chunk of hard-cast lead would do in the same gun.... :twisted:

Have you ever seen the movie OCTOBER SKIES? It was based on the book THE ROCKET BOYS by Homer Hickam. They were from the same county in southern WV where my mother in law was from. They had the same thing in common, vision.
They designed and built rockets including the nozzles and even made their own rocket fuel.

30/30 Winchester: Not accurate enough fer varmints, barely adequate for small deer; BUT In a 10" to 14" barrelled pistol; is good for moose/elk to 200 yards; ground squirrels to 300 metres

I dont call it a long Colt for the same reason I dont call it a short Auto!
