Janis and Jordan talk with MeatEater's own Garrett Long about everything that makes a great hunting bullet. They talk caliber, design, materials, and the performance we can (or can't) expect from our modern projectiles. They also discuss the nuances of copper, bonded, and cup and core. Additional topics include: why pinching a chainsaw is a real bummer, Jordan's plans to hunt Hawaii, and why a 7 Mickey Mouse used to get you laughed at.
