I shot a Bowling Pin match yesterday. People kept saying they needed to go to heavier, hotter bullets to get the pins off the table.
I disagree. I watched people do better with 38s with SWC bullets then heavy magnums.
I found that heavier helps a little but velocity had a limit ~1000 FPS works good, 1200 starts blowing though the pin and doesn't seem to take them off as good.
