A Hard Discussion - Determining BHN for the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Test

In General

This is the seventh video in the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Testing series, which is a long experiment testing powder coated cast lead hollow point bullets made from various alloys and fired at various velocities.

In this video I have a little fun using various methods to measure the hardness of the lead alloys used to cast the bullets that will be used for this test.
