I know hammer bullets are all the rage of LRH forum, but there’s something about lead that flat out gets it done. School me if I’m wrong, but one of the advantages to the hammer design is the ability to push it to extreme speeds that “normal” bullets can’t achieve. I believe it has to do with the design of the bullet, bearing surface, etc. Could you design a similar bullet with a bonded, lead core? A boat tail partition going 20-25% faster would be pretty intriguing for a lot of guys shooting 308s, 30-06, 7mm-08, etc.
