Does anybody have any real-world data on this? I just started uniforming meplats in an attempt to increase terminal effect, but i just tried beveling the HP also with a very tiny round type drill bit from a Dremel tool kit handheld, and my have better luck with that without losing any BC at all...?

I proposed doing the same thing a while ago here's the link, there is a little bit of info in not much but some.

I'm hoping to get some time to work with this idea on some Bergers, I think that just a real light trimming may be enough to set them of more consistently. I'm trying to figure out a rig to catch bullets at 1000 yrds in a barrel of water so I can actually see what is happening.
