It is a bonded bullet, as you probably well know. I don't know why most LR bullets aren't bonded. SMK, AMax, VLD, JLK's - none of them are bonded. I suspect it is because of cost and not being necessary.
Only reason I mention this is that some people believe that the bonding is detrimental to LR accuracy. Not me personally. I don't have enough knowledge to have a valid opinion on the bullet
