I heard this encounter, kind of got turned off after all the silliness. Not sure on use of silver. Silver is much harder than lead in the mohs scale so let's say something has good sized bones there should be more penetration and more of a chance of striking vitals. Someone can do this with maybe 100 or 150 dollars (US) and if they have a reload station. But honestly I could think of cheaper and harder material which would be easier to source (eg round iron stock or heck even aluminum is harder than lead.) Even fmj's there is only a small layer of metal covering the lead and this lead breaks apart pretty quick after impact. Something to think about is over penetration, I remember when I was a young man (a different life) 16 inches of penetration was probably going to hit something else after a target a wall or whatever (this was bad). But in the case of DM bone density and who knows we may have calcium deposits under the skin as a kind of armor like komodo dragons or armadillos. (osteoderm) In this case not knowing what one is dealing with makes sense to go with a metal core.
Shot placement is something which is often overlooked for example you can bring down pretty big animals with a blowgun or bow and it hits the right organ (heart or double lung) but then again I have seen people try to dispatch a wounded or out of control (dangerous) animal where 4+ rounds are discharged with no real affect, including one round that struck the head (just bounced off). While I don't think DM's heart is in it's foot or something really odd I think a lot of people panic and are happy to hit a target much less put a round where it counts.

The whole William thing was bothersome and subsequent email from the "CIA" it was beyond silly (not sure if you all seen that (it could have been verified if it was legit using SPF/DMARC/DKIM which most govt/corporate email has in order to sail past recipients' filters)).(The email is in the "Community" section and is really silly, enough so I don't want to mention what it says.) Stories and encounters can't be verified to a large extent but he has put out vocals (hopefully video or pictures) and these can be analyzed, although I doubt that original untouched photo's would be shared.
