Re: Cutting Edge Bullet Kills

The 168's have a Secant and the meplat is I little bigger. Now the 178's have a more of a Tangent ogive with a smaller meplat.

Huh! Sounds like a mixture depending on caliber and weight?

Both are .30 cal bullets. Scratch what I said. I knew I was going to get the ogives backwards. 168 is a Tangent, and the 178 is a Secant. Sorry! I always get them mixed up.
