Re: Midway's Blemished Bullets

Most blems/factory 2nds that I've gotten where actually production over runs. If you know what you have you can pretty quickly identify what midway is selling though, like what was posted above doesn't take a whole lot deduction to figure out, or the 7mm 160gr blems midway had for sale with bonded cores and polymer tip where pretty likely accubonds.

I get it. These look like they really are Interbonds, but with a cannelure. Didn't think they made them that way for anyone.

Re: Midway's Blemished Bullets

I bet if you look at a box of factory loads with 139gr interbonds they'd have a canular

Re: Midway's Blemished Bullets

You are right. I found a guy on Gunbroker who sold a box of Hornady 7mm mag. ammo, with the moly coated 139 gr. Interbond that has a cannelure. It's not on Hornady's website, whether moly coated or not, in any 7mm loaded ammo.

I'm guessing the Interbond is possibly just a handload bullet now, without the cannelure, unless some other manufacturer of loaded ammo is using it. That would put it into the over run category I guess.
