I never doubted it would go through all five. The last time I shot my .50/70 it reminded me that big bullets are REAL HARD to stop. Just the nature of the beast.
Good video.

I wonder how that would perform in a .357 with just a little more powder but not changing case volume much.

I was thinking about how they would do in .357 too.
There is a lot of load data for 200gr .357 loads. Pretty peppy loads most of them. Big bullets are typically harder to slow down, especially cast lead. I used a lot of cast lead when I handgun hunted years back. You don’t need a lot of expansion when the bullet is already .429 or bigger, and they break bones well. Out of a .38 special years back that would be an interesting load...whole lot of penetration.
