Good to know. I might try some out on pigs first. I've also heard from some guys on AR that absolutely hate the barnes "X" bullets, and I've heard from others that swear by them. I guess I'll just have to see for myself. Thanks for the help fellas.
I think most people that hate any bullet, used it improperly or, in the case of the Barnes, not at all. I have never used the Barnes but it's a no brainer that a solid copper bullet is not coming apart. I have wondered about it opening and there have been reports I trust where it didn't. But, even if a bullet doesn't open, if it's well placed in the vitals and penertates, it'll do the job.
Right--we always count each bucket after season is over--BWAAA-I was only pointing out that whilst many arm chair hunters blast(pun) at partitions --they do the job- not many folks in AK that I knew used core lokts and most didn't buy factory stuff either--Heck i ain't a stats guy anyway--Use what ever you like--
Moose calling can get confusing to some, but cow calling is your main tool when moose hunting. If you go out and buy moose calls I would say you're wasting your money unless it is the birch bark cone. I find most store bought moose calls sounding worse than puffing a grunt your hands to make the call. You can roll up a piece of birch bark in a cone shape to use as a call and spend your money on a video that teaches you the basics of a cow call. A milk jug or a coffee can with a hole and a rope...
