I have a question for Murphy or some of the other shooting/reloading experts on the forum.....
I have asked Barnes Bullets if they intend to offer a .35 caliper bullet heavier than the 225 grain presently offered as their catelog number 35824. The response was "No".
Not being one inclined to accept "No" to stuff in life, I'm drawn to my next question:
Is it possible for me to swag or resize a 9.3 mm (.366 inch) 286 grain (Barnes catelog number 36628) copper bullet down to the .358 size without destroying the internal integrity of the bullet?
I know lead bullets can be re-sized using a reloading press and a sizing die. I'm wondering about a copper bullet though?
I assume the Sectional density & Ballistic coefficient would be altered to new values. I'm more interested in the structural integrity of the bullet remaining true for terminal performance.
If possible, please suggest tips and/or equipment recommended on the re-sizing/swagging process.
