I don't believe there were any imperfections in the bullets. It's possible that I did that with the milling machine but I'll deny it if possible!!

One other comment....I've heard people complain that the partition "went right through" without expanding. Man the jacket around the nose area is as thin as any other bullet up there. You'll never convince me a partition doesn't mushroom.

Very interesting Dave.
Notice how the Scenar has a little doughnut shaped ring on top of the lead core? Any ideas what this is for or is it just a footprint of the machine that puts the lead in there?

kraky1,
I thought this also for a long time after my first deer i shot had a pencil sized entry and exit wound. After doing some research on the partition bullet after this happened I found at that what typically happens with partition bullets is that the fron area expands and many times separates from the rear of the bullet. After this happens the rest of the bullet essentially acts like a flat nosed FMJ.

Just some infor I had read
take it easy

lerch, my only experience with the partition on game was a big sized deer (some 350 lbs) shot at 250 m. broadside. As you say, small entry and exit wound, the deer ran like hell after being shot for some 60 yds. and fell. I agree with you, classic partition behaviour seems to be open up and fragment front part, and you end up with a hardly expanded rear section that goes through.
