Shoot the Speers to see what happens, only one way to find out, but shoot them in the head.

Back in the mid 60's I loaded the Speer 100 grain half jacket bullet with 10 grains of Unique. I shot a number of jacks with it. Quite decisive. Left an exit wound about the size of a silver dollar. This was using a Model 94 from the mid fifties.

That is the load that I use with a cast bullet but it works with a half jacket as well.
