I was thinking of buying some, so that happened. I should warn everyone when I am going to get gas, buy gold, or take a plane trip, because some SOB is going to raise the cost of whatever I think about doing.something kicked silver in the back side today, it's up to $24.62. almost a dollar an ounce.
just curious . . .don't silver bullets 'tumble' & cause the shot to 'go wild'?
I'm such a poor shot I would need silver shot in the ol' 12 gauge
I was just being a smarta$$, but I'm pretty certain the SG of silver is substantially lower than lead, they also take the Pb vs Cu SG into account when making jacketed bulletsjust curious . . .
how would silver bullets be any different than lead or copper jacketed bullets?
granted, a 12 bore would be better, but it would also 'waste' a lot of silver BB's
actually dropping molten shot from the top of a tower into a water bath is a very old idea (pre-colonial?)melting point for coin silver is about 1600 F or so
personally, I would not want to get hit with either one out of a shotgun, pistol or rifle. However that being said, I think the silver may be worth more, as ammunition, in some circumstances.
but I think it would make lousy hollow points.
as for the dropping into water
damn good idea, I never would have thought of that.
I wonder if having the mold in chilled water would help.
It would be fun to have a silver bullet or two laying around
I'll shut up now . . .I'm babbling.
