Has anyone had any experience of copper plated swaged lead bullets in rifle calibres?
I have obtained a couple of hundred in 8mm and 9.3mm in order to load inexpensive training rounds for my 8x57jrs and 9.3x74r rifles but so far trials have been disappointing certainly not anywhere as good as cast bullets.
Data from H & N in Germany suggest that these should only be loaded to moderate velocities yet bullets of similar design and construction seem to have quite a following in South Africa for meat hunting.
Would it be reasonable to assume that the same modern thinking regarding pressure limitations on the bullet rather than velocity limitations could be applied?
This is a question open to all but I am sure that Muir will be able to enlighten me on this one.
