Re: Metplat trimming
Does pointing and trimming make a difference? I think so for long range target shooting where ½” at 1000 can make all the difference with a close score after a few days shooting and where expansion means squat to paper. I don’t think a deer will notice the small BC improvement with pointing but will take notice to a bullet not expanding. Trimming is usually conducted in conjunction with pointing to uniform the BC. There is little advantage by conducting these reloading procedures for big game hunting. Maybe so if you are ELR hunting and know when to do one or both to improve results. I point and trim when necessary only for target shooting and ELR testing.
