    Why copper, out of curiosity?
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    I guess. For plain target plinking, I bet they weren't using copper. It's a semantic question, though, so it doesn't matter.

    Yep, cause of the copper bullets. It was a 9mm, so even target rounds would be copper jackets over lead.

    Not necessarily. Solid lead bullets are preferred by reloaders (they're cheaper) and swaged lead bullets are considered by many to be the most accurate pistol bullet available. I used pure lead for all my practice and competition rounds.
    You should probably use commercial rounds for self-defense, but that's another story.

    Absolutely. Off-topic for sure, but I agree with you. It would be a civil lawyer's dream to handle a wrongful death suit where the shooter was a handloader.

    If they are dumb enough to not know a trail is 50 feet from their house, I doubt they are smart enough to do more than buy a box of 50 from the store and fire away.

    If you're saying that we reloaders are pretty smart folks: thanks! Who am I to argue?
