I am at school and was just informed by my roomate that I can go deer hunting tomorrow. All my guns are at home which is 540 miles away. He is going to hunt with his 30-06. He would let me borrow his m.95 steyr but the only problem is it shoots 8x56r which only has ammo available in fmj military surplus. So we got the bright idea that we can take a grinder and grind the tips off the fmj bullets and turn them into an expanding soft point. Anybody have any thoughts on this, do you think it will work, and do you think it is safe? I usually don't try dumb stuff like this but I don't have any other guns available to hunt with. My other option is to buy a m-44 for 60 bucks from a vintage gun dealer and I can buy 7.62x54 hunting ammo for that.
