Has anyone ever heard of annealing Hornady SSTs or InterBonds?
I read this just a bit ago, and was just curious if any of you had heard of this?
"Annealing can produce two benefits. In the first instance, it helps the frontal area of both the SST and IB to swage back after expansion, the frontal area folds back against the bullet shank and the reduced frontal area allows for much deeper penetration- but without sacrificing wound channel diameters.
In the second instance, at long range, the softer ogive gives faster expansion, imparting energy more readily, improving wound channel diameters. This helps the Interbond to create broad wounding at ranges of around 400 yards in various calibiers while allowing the SST to produce admirable performance out to ranges exceeding 1000 yards."
