Re: Meplet uniforming. Two questions
I did terminal testing on the concept on some original 252 grain Wildcats.
Some were before Richard Graves put the point on them very similar to what is shot in the bullet pointer pics. Some were before the point.
Both point types performed the same as far as I could tell.
I have no reservations regarding any change in terminal performance of the SMK when repointed. A slight meplat trimming wouldn't hurt anything either with out repointing. The bc loss is very slight.
Repeatible accuracy is the important thing. I'm going to do some very long range testing with 350 SMKs in a 375 AM to experience the trajectory consistency between untrimmed, meplate slightly uniformed and repointed. I'll do terminal testing also. That will be in 2012 though......
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!
