Shocked
We loaded some 230 cast to try there over 1500 fps, published speed.
They shoot 18" higher then my 303s at 50 yards.
a bout a 15" group at that range too, not as impressed as with the 303s. At 50 I get them to group about 8"
Apparently I did not have my arms locked, I was shooting off a bench and bags, no stiches but bleed like an old guy on aspirin

got a 10" 357; a 10 "   44 mag: and a 375 12 inch....all scoped.

generally they shoot sub MOA at 100 yards.  best kill wasa whitetail at 153 yards
  eyes need scope

By scoped, I meant in the forehead.

I've seen it happen in videos but thankfully I've never had it happen to me. 

I think I'll stick with .357's. I don't hunt with mine so it's mostly plinking and getting cracked over the head by a scope doesn't sound like something I'd be interested in.

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

Just watched Kentucky Ballistics shoot a 500 nitro pistol one handed. Turns out there is a 600 nitro pistol as well........May wanna steer clear of those......unless the PD's have plate carriers.

Ex-S-I-L did that with my DE in 50AE. The second,"oh sh**" shot almost took her head off. I grabbed it mid cycle before the third chambered completely. Knocked her muffs clean off and the barrel rib left a wide bruise on her noggin. She is an avid shooter and owns many. Gotta be prepared for those biguns or they will get ya every time.

.........did the gun survive?
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!

Adds character!


Lots of rifle shooter "creep" up on those pistol scopes.  some brands of pistol scope 'encourage" less than adequate eye relief.
