Ok I have many of both for my Inlines and Sidelocks.

Killed with both Jacketed and Pure Lead Bullets. Ok most want a Bullet holding together so they like the Jacketed .

Am I weird liking the Pure Lead? To me it spreads more and might break up. To me both good.

Ok I know both will kill but I have more confidence in pure Lead so I'll probably stay with it but I still have hundreds of rounds Jacketed.

I killed a 450 pound Hog with a 45Cal. 180gr. Jacketed but still don't have the confidence.

Thoughts and Ideas?

For me it would depend on the animal hunted, distance of expected shots, needing an exit wound etc.

Mostly White Tail Deer. 80-100 yards.

The Ram in my Avatar was killed with pure Lead.

Ok when I run out of Pure Lead do I just buy more or use up the Jacketed Bullets I have?
