The Actual Bearing Surface of the bullet which is what determines the pressure curve.

    The bearing surface is the part of the bullet that actually contacts the bore of the rifle.

    Thanks. That should be the last tool that I have to buy. I'm not saying that I don't have some that could be upgraded, but I think that tool is the last piece of the puzzle that's not in the toolbox.
