Re: .257 STW question - crimping
I only now realized what's REALLY going on.
When miking the Trophy Bonded bullets, I didn't pay that much attention where on the bullet I took the measurement.
Turns out at the very base, they mike .257". Move up the shank maybe 1/4", and they mike .256", move further towards the tip, they mike .255".
I went through a whole box of 25, they were all the same. Opened another box, miked half of them, they also varied .002" from the heel forward.
I have a call into customer support, we'll see what they say.
"Hell boys, I'd rather be hung by my friends instead of a bunch a damn strangers."
