Hofts,
There is one point the guys left out; with a big bore revolver most jacketed bullets do not expand on game, unless you hit a large bone. The hard cast SWC bullet in a revolver penetrated well and cuts a neat X diameter hole through tissue. The effect is samewhat like an expanding bullet, without the actual expansion. The hard cast SWC bullet makes an excellent medium sized game bullet for a large bore revolver. I only use jacketed bullets in rifles and have been shooting cast for 43 years.
