It's not the whole bullet, just the tip.

This is one of RG's 280's on the left and a 300 SMK on the right.

He will have some rifle and specialty handgun .308 bullets available as soon as I get done with the testing. I personally think the .308s will be more impressive than the .338s.

His customer service is exceptional as well. Answers both phone and email messeges promptly.

How can that be i thought all copper bullets left copper in the barrel?

When the barrel is smooth and the bullets are of good chemical composition they tend to foul very little. For instance, I left shooters choice in the barrel for 24 hours yesterday after a range session and got no copper indication. I then scrubbed the barrel with a brass brush and got an indication of copper. They do not foul in my barrels! The only copper component in the barrel is the brass from the brush.
