I would not disagree with the effectiveness of an unhardened bullet at ml velocities. Just that with an animal as large as a moose I woudl want to maintain the integrity of the meplat for good penetration and wound channel.I do not think they have to be hardened though pure lead will still penetrate Very Well.

Hey Busta, where are you planning to hunt when you come out for Elk? I'm a transplanted (many years ago) Yooper.I second the 460 grain No-Excuses conical, either that or an old White 430gr Super Slug will be my Elk load in Colorado this fall. Still have a little more shooting to do though.
I grew up in Ontonagon but spent my summers living with my grandparents in Grand Marais, which is between Marquette and the Soo. If I couldn't live somewhere in the Rockies as I do Now, I'd sure want to be back in the UP!What part of the Yoop are ya from? I sure do miss living up there, but wouldn't mind it where you are now either.
I don't know the answer to that. You can call the DOW main office in DEnver and ask, but it's my guess that they won't even know what you are talking about! You can call there three days in a row and ask three different people the same question and get three different answers. I'd say go ahead and use 'em, but don't expect me to testify at the trial.Hey, I have a question for you. Do you know if the .25 ACP primer is legal in CO, the regs say shotgun primers? What is the difference in the actual primer anyways? I guess I'll have to call the DOW and see if it is considered the same thing in the actual regs
I haven't hunted Grand Mesa for years. Looks like on paper there are plenty of elk up there. One of my son in laws grew up in Parachute and he knows it pretty well but we don't go over there cause we have some pretty good "statewide" areas close to home.We hunted up on the Grand Mesa back in '02, took me three years to draw again.
