    Default Corbin

    Call Corbin and find out what it costs to start making your own .204 caliber bullets. IT WILL be far less than what you are quoting, or have been quoted ! The jacket thickness coupled with velocity is what determines a bullets expansion. If you use a heavy jacket the bullet would have little expansion and yet would be the right length/weight for your rifleing twist. PLUS you now own the equipment to build bullets forever ! GREAT winter project; making bullets !
    This equipment would also allow you to adjust bullet weights/lengths for individual rifles; unlike buying a LOT from Barnes that would be a one time one bullet deal.
    JUST MY .02

    Interesting, what would you use a .204 solid for?

    I can't imaging it would create a wound channel at all. Are you trying to save fur?
