That makes sence as the rifling has to etch the bullet when starting. Did you have any trouble with the tips getting stuck in the rod?

i will be cleaning tween shots to sight in the way it will be shot when hunting, clean cold bore.. i may end up trying a combo of the three bullets i have, one for cold clean bore, one for warm/cold dirty follow up.... just depends how im feelin...
