Recently I received an interesting catalog in the mail. It's from the Duluth Trading Company, and they manufacture rugged outdoor clothing made of fire hose material. http://www.DuluthTrading.com I have not tried any of their products yet, however, I plan to in the future and just wanted to share it with you and your readers for your and their consideration.
I have a question for you too, if you don't mind. Why is a FMJ round more
desirable in combat than a Soft Point? My reasoning is that Soft Point ammo
and creates a larger wound channel than a FMJ. That has been my observation
on deer taken with a .30-06 150 grain Winchester Silver Tip, for example. Thank
Merry Christmas to you and Yours - D.O.T.
JWR Replies: In essence, I'm a believer for full metal jacket
(FMJ) ammunition for rifles, and premium jacketed hollow point (JHP) ammunition
for most handguns. Hollow
points are important for handguns because with their relatively low power (compared
to rifles), you need all of the expansion that you can get. FMJs are
important for rifles because you never know when you will be up against an
opponent that is
wearing body armor (it is increasingly popular with gang members) or that
is shooting at you from behind light cover.
