What do they weigh? I'm interested.

I bought some Hornady Great Plains 385gr bullets. I'll see how they do. The gun has 1-28 twist and only weighs 6 1/2lbs. Open sights restricts me to 50-60yds. I'm thinking 75-80gr of 2F should work for a cow elk.

I wanted to shoot the 460gr NoExcuses, but they were way too loose in the bore. Paper patching might have worked.

I knurled the hell out of them. The problem is it's such soft lead (pure lead) that the knurling compresses too easily and they're still too loose when they get to the powder.

What's needed is they should have been sized/cast bigger, but all he offers is the one size of .503. That would be fine with a harder material, but not soft lead.

I should have tried it when I still had them. I'm hoping the 385gr coming will work now. They're pretty cheap to buy, so i'm hoping they work.
