Wild Bill G
- May 13, 2016
Years ago I had a benchrest friend who made and sold bullets. He told me that the tip damage of a bullet does not matter. What matter is the base ring of the bullet if it is damaged a bullet will not shoot. He even claimed he would shoot his bullets loaded backwards to prove his point. What he was refering to then was the then plastic tipped bullets to protect the nose of the bullet. The story those days was that the flattened lead tips would effect accuracy. Today both tips are still used and we see hollow point hunting bullets wich was supposed to not work.
