I misunderstood what you meant by 65% of the bullets length in bearing surface. Didn’t realize it meant distance from the base, thought it meant total surface. Couldn’t imagine how that was possible without casting a paper-patch style bullet. I’ve been trying to figure out how to get rid of the crimp groove without buying another mold. Would the .180″ meplat be satisfactory for 100 yds as well as the 200-600 you mention? I cringe at the thought of shooting black powder in my rifle. I’ve shot it before in other rifles and as far as I’m concerned, it’s a nasty, dirty mess to have to deal with. I’ll ponder all you recommend, though.
