Re: Bullet pointing ??

Haven't used this on hunting ammo, but I can pretty well guarantee you, it'll eliminate any expansion and make the bullets perform more like FMJs. May not change a lot with the thin jacketed Berger Hunting bullets, but then, those don't expand like most conventional hunting bullets anyway.
