    Thanks a lot, JE223. I'm in Denver on work but this gives me something interesting to review in the evening.

    Well it looks like it did a pretty good job to me. I am glad you guys did this one i was wondering how that round did. I wonder how some of the surplus rounds (steel core) would do also.
