They should have came to me, I would have told them all about reloading mercury core glass bullets, and shotgun shells loaded with
fishing weights strung together with picture frame wire. [banana]

I remember seeing a specialty load called the “Hooker” that was a fishing weight tied by wire to a fishing hook, and I think two of those in each round.

There's also the specialty load that uses a human tooth as the projectile so that when you shoot someone in the face with it,
it confounds the forensics investigators about what the victim was shot with. [dance]

Even when the media tries they can't seem to get the most basic information correct. That author still does not understand the difference between a bullet, a casing, and a round. As if anyone is out there hand making casings.

why don’t guys like this just STFU when the NYT calls?
One of the guys who trains with us from time to time at Kuntao class is a Connecticut defense attorney. He's given CT self-defense law seminars, and I've been to one. He actually has a slide in his Powerpoint deck that says SHUT THE f*** UP. He also highly advised against handloads in defensive weapons, due to how it would be seen by the (likely very liberal) judge, state's attorneys, etc: "OMG: He makes his own booletz!!1!" (He also strongly advises against silly shit like "zombie apocalypse" lowers for how they would be perceived by same.)

I suppose Hornaday zombie ammo is as "right out" as counting to 4 with the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch.

so hand engraving on my shell casings "take that bitch","here's another","one for your ass," would be a bad idea then?

Are you saying you don't think that actually happens? If so, I can guarantee you it does. In fact, I've cast .38 with tire weights I collected from the side of the road.
