Then I will up the pure lead a bit so I get a good 18 bhn for my 35 Rem boolits...I use BHN 16 -18 in my 30-30, 32 spl and 35 Rem lever actions. Any blacktails I have hit have only gone about 10 yds before dropping. Last buck I shot I hit in the neck and he dropped on the spot. I use GC'd boolits only. I don't use any jacketed bullets except for plinking loads and when the ones I have are gone, they are gone. I like FP's or HP's for hunting.
