Re: speer new deep curl bullet
Also note that the Deep Curl bullets are NOT in the same price class as other bonded bullets. They are generally the same price as traditional cup & core bullets but with the added benefits of chemical bonding jacket to core. I read somewhere(on the net) that these Speer bullets are plated jackets....meaning instead of a copper cup swaged around a lead core they are a lead core plated up like many pistol bullets are.
I intend to try them out in my 257 whenever I can. They offer things that I like in a small-bore bullet....bonded, flat point(vs. pointy that gets damaged in the magazine), and economical price.
You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!
