Weird Stuff Happens

Shooting the .325's the other day. Setup a steel target at 400 yards - don't like to shoot steel that close but was tired and getting shot-out.
Fired some 220 grain factory Power Point ammo at the center of the steel, got a nice group with the out of the box M-70. Went to the target to paint the impacts and noticed many of the craters had lead cores in them. Looked at the ground in front of the steel plate and saw some shiny little hollow tubes. Lead smeared on the outside. Obviously bullet jackets. Put them into a pocket and shot some more. Later I examined the jackets, they were turned inside out. Could see the rifling inside the tube. One end of each tube was cut clean, the other was ragged. How in hell they turn inside out I do not know, but it happened. Obviously a reaction from smacking the steel, but...
180 Ballistic Tips and 200 Accubonds went right through, clean holes. Shot the same 220's at 5, 6 and 700 yards and just got little craters.
Over 800 rounds through the two .325's now, starting to get some good knowledge about what they do.
