Re: Do Exposed Lead Tips of Bullets Melt During Flight?
I believe when a bullet doesn't make it to it's intended target, you will find one of two causes.
First, with high velocity, and especially a fast twist rate barrell, some bullets are spinning fast enough that the centrifigual force is greater than the yield strength of the jacket, thus the jacket opens and the bullet comes apart in flight. Look at the FEA that Varmint Al has on his web page.
Secondly, you cant shoot straight! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
