Bullet-Cutting Cross in Hard Nose
Bullet-Cutting Cross in Hard Nose-I fail to agree in regard to cutting of a cross in the point of a hard nose bullet. I have three 7mm rifles and have been trying that scheme for two years and have given it up in disgust. The hard nose bullet has the lead exposed at the back, and when you cut the point you give the powder a chance to force the lead partly through the copper tube, making four wings on the point of the bullet-at least that is my experience.
I have tried cutting the cross and also cutting a ring around and removing the point then melting out the lead, dressing up the point with a file and putting it point down in a plaster of Paris mould that I previously made, then pour in the leas; take the point that has been removed and flatten it with a hammer, coat it with solder and stick it on the base of the bullet. I use a gasoline torch for that-hold the bullet with a pair of tongs in the flame till the solder sticks then dress edge of base with a file. Even these are not accurate; in shooting at a large rock at 300 yards, I have had them miss entirely. I now have a reloading took which I use to change bullets, and two quarts of soft point bullets which I purchased from the Remington U.M.C company. I have one 7mm. rifle equipped with a Maxim Silencer. The Silencer cuts the noise down by ½ , bu the main thing it does away with is kick, which is a good thing when your eyes are about one inch from the scope.
