    I'm still brand new to the sport. But here, this explains it very well...

    One session and I'm hooked. Doesn't (necessarily) chew up a lot of ammo.
    It's a hoot!

    Thanks for the link, @Canine Dave. Very informative. It's interesting that the bowling pins get heavier over time (as they retain more and more Pb)! Also interesting is the fact the .357 Magnum (and .357 Sig, too?) is considered one of the main calibers for this (along with .45 ACP and 10mm Auto, for example).

    Worse than additional weight, the bullets sometimes stick out and the pin won't roll (off the table). Most amazing are the pins hit with a full load of 00 buck. They fly backwards still uprght until they hit the backstop.

    Bill Wilson in his autobiography speaks a little to shooting pins. He won many major pin matches. Bill Wilson often favored a Colt Python shooting a .38 Special +P load. Said the secret to it was accurately hitting the fat part of the pins. Bill Wilson being the world class shooter that he was, one suspects he was able to do so pretty quickly. Said a good hit with his load was enough. Didn't need magnum power loads.
