Recoil was typical full power 10mm. Stout but manageable. I don't really know how to articulate my felt recoil in objective terms.
Yes, the bullets are cast from a mold made by Mihec. It comes with three pins for deep cavity, shallow cavity, and flat point.
I plan to test that load again on bare gelatin to see if it expands. Not too many pigs or bears wear heavy clothing. Except, well....
I also plan to test the same bullet closer to 1,200 fps and possibly with a softer alloy. I'd like to see just a little bit of expansion but keep penetration over 20".
