I can't answer the why ?, but can tell you that they are on Bergers and some Sierras as well. I think it has to do w/the copper folding over itself when forming the point.

It is on a lot of bullets. Nothing to be concerned about in the least. Like bill said, i think it is formed when the tip is swaged.

Re: lines on wildcats bullets

They're an aerodynamic enhancement, kinda like the dimples on a golf ball. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

That crazy Canuk up north figured out a way to make his bullets more aerodynamic and efficient. However, the effect only works in the northwestern states, so you'd probably better just send them to me and I'll dispose of them for you.
