Re: keyholing bullets

There should be a term for what you are getting but keyholing meant something a little less drastic to me.
That is one of the more bizare things I have seen.
If you're gonna be dumb you better be tough.

Done that years ago with the 17 Rem. After about 4 shots through a clean bbl that's whatcha got.

The other feature was a lead feather trace out of the hole on the target @ 100 yds. Tho't that was cool too. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Quite a feature. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
