    Wind River is a really good movie. Not sure if a 45/70 would knock folks around like that but it sure was dramatic!

    In the SciFi TV series, Falling Skies, they had to make bullets from salvaged alien metal in order to kill the alien machines.

    When I was a KID (mid 40s) we would go to the "Hitching Post" theater (Santa Monica, Calif) for the Saturday Westerns. Hoppy Long Cassidy , Tom Mix, Gabby Hays etc.
    All the Boys had to "CHECK" their cap guns and holsters at the gun booth next to the popcorn stand. OH FOR THE GOOD OLD DAYS

    I think there was reloading in the movie Sniper (1993) with Tom Beringer. It was a good movie. Matt

    Almost as bad as in the last Rambo, get shot with a Barrett 50 and the bad guy would absolutely fly off the screen.

    It was funny to me when Swagger was looking at the can through the scope at 1 mile and the can in reality looked like it was 75 yards away.

    The shot with the 22rf out of the boat was a good one.

    The old hillbilly Gunsmith played his part well.

    As he always did. Levon Helm. Aside from his music he was a great character actor. Chuck Yeager's friend Jack Ridley, and Helm was also the narrator through that movie (The Right Stuff) with that haunting voice of his. Although a brief role in The Shooter he was great.

    Friend of mine in a neighboring city handled a homicide a year or two back. Officers and detectives arrived on that scene to find where one of the participants in the shootout had stood, only to see a 50/50 mix of live rounds and expended cases. Took them a while to realize that this idiot had fired a round, racked the slide, fired a round, racked the slide, etc.. Apparently he really had learned to shoot by watching movies and/or TV.

    Who says that these things aren’t educational?

    No. He was "pointing" his bullets with a file though

    How about Mel Gibson in the patriot ? Pretty fitting casting round balls from his son's toy soldiers. A front loader is loading, but not reloading. Still cool...

    I remember a movie long ago (38 yrs.) that the main hero was filling hollow points with mercury. Then sealing the tips with wax or lead if I remember correctly. Apparently when he shot the bad guys they would cause a lot of damage by sending the mercury if all directions. I can not think of the title, was not a very good movie. Probably a Golin and Globus production.

    That might have been The American starring anti-gun nut George Clooney. As I recall he crafted a highly accurate super powerful Mini 14.

    You may be right. It's been a long time. The small nail file was for his trigger finger lol.
