Interesting. In the poll about what weight bullet, most people seem to prefer 158 gr. for carry. (a weight that is usually just lead either LRN or LSWCHP or LSWC) But the results here seem to indicate carrying and shooting Jacketed and semi jacketed a little more (typically lighter weights)

well, I carry 146gr Speer SJ-SWCHP, so I get a jacketed bullet with all the characteristics of a LSWCHP. I generally carry these for out on town. When woods bumming or working on the farm I carry a 154gr LWC. S, in a way I carry both, and shoot both.

Just out of curiousity, what were you hoping to gain from this poll?

I shoot 148gr swcbb. They are great paper punchers!

I like most any decent jacketed rounds or copper washed lead swc.
They help to clean up easier than plain lead. I guess I just don't buy plain lead when I see the copper washed swc, jsp, or jhp for reasonable cost.

Carry Federal 129gr +p JHP, shoot whatever I can find cheap. I prefer jacketed because it's easier clean up.
