Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default A popular choice for decades in defensive ammunition, Federal Hydra-Shok bullets are now available as a reloading component.

I've been pretty happy with Hornady XTP's for hollow point pistol bullets, but the Hydra-Shok has always been a pretty impressive performer in factory loadings. I bet reloaders can milk out all the performance potential of the bullet, though.

Hopefully, they'll come out with some in .44 caliber so I can try them in my sabots with the muzzleloader.

If you’ve studied defensive ammunition for any time you’re certain to have heard of Hydra-Shok. Federal Premium cooked up the stuff around 30 years ago, a response to the FBI’s call for something better than old cup-and-core. Since, the hollow-point with the unique center post has achieved near iconic status, becoming a favorite of law enforcement and armed citizens alike. The next segment to conquer – reloaders.

"The truly dangerous man dresses inconspicuously and is soft- spoken. He walks away from most confrontations. The only time you learn that the truly dangerous man is mad at you is a split second before you die, for he never fights. He only kills. The truly dangerous man knows that fighting is what children do and killing is what men do." - Charley Reese 1986

I like the Speer golddots, but I may try some of those.
A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.
Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, February 12, 1779
