XTP sabots vs conicals
That's what I'll do then. I'll start out with a 40 cal mold.
note* I was talking about a trying to make a 7 caliber tangent pure lead rifle bullet in a .357 diameter. A bullet like that looks like a spitzer point bullet you would shoot from a centerfire rifle. I was thinking that the long thin nose may become mishaped or even bent upon firing. I was all set to make that bullet mold and I read where lead bullets will mishape upon firing, that's why I thought would go with a larger caliber like .40 or .429. I appreciate everyones comments, I am somewhat new to the blackpowder world, my experience is in the centerfire benchrest and benchrest bullet swaging. thanks again.
