    Thor .50 cal. M/L Bullets- Anyone want some?

    I have 44 Thor 250 grain, .502 dia M/L bullets that are not the right size for my M/L. I guess I screwed up and ordered the wrong size....too big. If you can use them, they are yours for the postage. Send me a PM where to send them and when you get them just send me a check for the postage on the box. I also have the "try" set they send you to determine the correct size of your barrel.

    I have some .501 I want to shoot. Did you even get the first one to load?

    Yes...but the second takes way too much push to get it even part way down. I think .501 would be the one for my gun.

    When I got the package of the 4 "try" bullets of different diameters, I picked the wrong one.

    The .500 slid down my barrel, the ,501 pushed with very little effort and the .502 pushed with a lot of effort. The .503 would not push. I chose the .501 so I could reload easier

    I did the same thing, but picked the wrong one. How do they shoot?

    If you can get them down. That's the right size. Especially, if you use BH 209. It needs some compression.

    No need to give away Thors. Terry will gladly exchange them for the right size. He wants his customers to be happy. That's why he sends you a free sample.

    I'll have to get in contact with him and see if I can work out some sort of exchange. Thanks for the suggestion. Usually...you bought them, you own them!

    As a matter of fact. He should have sent you the bullets with a bill. Even after you try the samples and put in an order. He wants you to try the bullets in the order before you pay for them.

    I promise you he won't have a problem exchanging them for the right size.
