Bullet advice

RE: Bullet advice
My reommendation for the 457125 500gr RN Gov't bullet is especially regarding
Kurt's comment about easy reload as this bullet is designed with the small diameter of the Nose for clearance
for fouling

Would you cast from a softer alloy than what is commonly used for long range target shooting?

For the BP load velocities, I would probably go with a 16+1 or maybe 20+1 lead/tin alloy
assuming a broadside heart/lung shot.
But, Kurt , who has shot several Bison should answer this question.

I used 1/20 for all of my hunts. I want a complete pass through to vent the boiler room. they go down quicker.
The last one I shot I had to put three shots all three hit just above the heart on the lower part of the lung.
The Bison is a tough animal. If you are close enough where you feel confident to take a head shot behind the ear he will drop on the spot but if you want to mount the scull there wont be much solid enough to hold the hide.
I used the .44-77 for two and the .44-90 bn for the first. All three I used the original Sharps bullet profile patched.

The reason a dog has so many friends is because he wags his tail instead of his tongue.
