Default Question- Re: Film: Wind River

Has anyone seen this film? My question concerns the Fish & Wildlife Hunter in the film. At one point he is reloading ammunition. during the reloading he pours a green liquid into the rifle cartridges before completing the reloading.

My question is what is the green liquid? That question has bugged me for quite awhile. Would appreciate anyone who can supply this information. Thanks.

Default It sounds like BS.....

Probably they don't want to 'educate' people on the reloading process so they put in a 'mystery' component to throw people off.

BUT: I'll remain open minded and hope somebody comes along with an explanation so I won't have to spend four bucks to check it out.

Rainier Ale, AKA Green Death. Makes the bullets more deadly. Or not.

I don't recall that. If you go to 2:19 in this clip it shows the scene but it may not be complete.

I just watched that clip several times. It looks to me like he used an electronic scale to dispense powder into a pan, and then poured the powder into the shell.

Not sure if I've got my terminology exact. I reload, but use a beam scale and don't have any kind of trickle dispenser. I assumed the electronic beep you hear during the process was a signal the powder being dispensed had hit a preset weight. But again, guessing because I've never had that stuff.

Great movie, Iíve seen it twice. Didnít see any green liquid, though. It looked to me like he was pouring powder from the scale pan into the cartridge case.

I didn't see any green liquid either, but I did notice that he inside reamed the case neck wayyyyy too much. It's like he was making a cutter die or something, he reamed the inside neck so much.

Great movie that highlights the very real issue of NA women as victims of violence on reservations.

If that movie had been a few years earlier, Marlin would still be independent! It is a giant commercial for the 1895 Guide Gun!

I enjoyed the movie and I don't recall seeing any green liquid either. On the other hand, Hollywood certainly took some liberties with the movie in General.

I used to live (and still have family there) near Lander in Riverton and I'm quite familiar with the area. The Wind River Reservation is a sad example of socialism in action. Both tribes (the Shoshoni and the Arapaho) now have casinos on the res as well as lots of oil income, but poverty still reigns and alcoholism and drug abuse abound.

I enjoyed that movie. It was almost like a spinoff of Longmire.


I missed the green liquid.

It must have some type of "Green stuff" loaded inside that case .

When that round hit the guy inside the trailer, that little round, turned into ....

the "Green Hulk Bullet" !!

Did you see the way it tossed that guy back across to the far wall and slam dunk him ? !!

It had to be at least a 700 gr bullet............. !

The cool scene Jeremy in Wind River(2017) - YouTube
I think I'll spend the four bucks on that. Curious as to what that shootout is all about.

In fact it's sickening.

I've been playing with 45-70 for almost 40 years, I only wish I could get Hollywood performance from my rifles. With the "Marlin" load shooting a guy with a ballistic vest on, and the bullet stops against the rear plate the almost 4000 pounds of energy might throw a 170 pound man a little bit, But I would expect a 2200fps 400 gr hard cast or heavy jacketed to pass through both sides of a 44mag rated vest! Nobody has volunteered for me to test this theory...yet! (at that distance: 50 yards) 500 grain lead bullets at 1250fps pass all the way through a buffalo.

I didn’t see a green liquid. Saw a green powder funnel, electronic powder dispenser and a lot of red (Hornady?) loading equipment. Good movie, really good.

Thanks for putting this up. Great job. I really enjoyed this film. I actually watched it 6 times. Great action and beautiful environment. That's what happens when you get up up in the Pandemic. I must have been mistaken although it did appear to be a liquid that was poured into the case. But it was so fast. I figured he might have used a special ingredient for the cold environment.
