But I sure do like how easy it is to see the holes in paper with the SWC !

Then go to a truncated cone. If you liek Berry's, their 200grTCFP feeds 100% & makes nice holes in paper.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".

WOW ! If thats the case, you have just solved my SWC problem by thinking outside the box.
Thanks Fred

I just loaded a 50 of the SWC rounds for my nephew to play around with, at first I loaded them to 1.272" but the magazine on the Taurus PT-145 Millennium Pro is somewhat short and I reseated them to 1.252" to allow for better feeding from the magazine. When hand cycling them I did notice that some were being knocked off the extractor.

He is going to test them for function when he gets some range time. I will have to advise him of this situation to see if he experiences any Stove pipes or FTE with this bullet. Oh well...Live and Learn! C'est la vie
