    Lehigh Defense?

    Anyone ever used any of their extreme penetrator rounds for rifle? I had a discount code and picked some up for my 45-70. 305 grains of solid projectile. Seem to feed just fine in my Henry lever action.

    I've loaded two different loads to try out. Wondering what they will do for hogs!!!!

    Next to regular 300 gr federal fusion and 5.56 for size comparison.

    I've used their subsonic 300blk ammo and it is fantastic. Lehigh makes some awesome bullets.

    What he said.^^^^^^
    The only reason to disarm a man is to force him to do something that you couldn’t force him to do if he was armed.

    Good deal. We'll see how the bullet and the load do in my Henry lever gun.

    45-70 vs hogs - - -> Want to blow a huge hole and ruin alot of meat . . . Hornady 300gr pushed as fast as possible.
    Want to penetrate the largest of hogs . . . 405gr WFNGC (hardcast). Put it on the shoulder.

    Yeah,in an open peanut field,I usually just chase 'em down and hamstring 'em with my Swiss Army Knife.
    But . . . if you just gotta shoot them . . . go ahead. --- SAWMAN
    ADDED: Take a look at the Cutting Edge Bullets website. (.458" bullets) It is hard to believe that they would do any better than a 405 as mentioned above. The weight,combined with the speed that you can drive it at,to me,is perfection.

    Only got these because I didn't pay full price! And let's be honest, they look cool! Hahaha

    I have two loads, one mild and one medium. I may load them hotter depending. I've shot hogs with both regular expanding .458 rounds and hard cast! You're right about destroying meat with expanding ones. The hardcast just punch right through. Curious what this bullet design will do. They say it's to penetrate massive amounts and provide some extra wound cavity. So we'll see.
