it always frustrates me when i am loading, and have fluctuations in COAL. sierra match kings can give me a slight difference between rounds and it looks like the very tip of the bullet can have a flaw / metal burr sticking up causing it,

then i can load Sierra Game Kings and have one round COAL at 2.744 and the next at 2.760+  without making any adjustments to the press, while trying to load at 2.750"


please tell me im not the only one who deals with this issue!

If you measure on the ogive, you will find things are much more consistent.

You COULD (if you wanted) uniform the tips.

I started using a comparator to check COAL after frustration with tip deformaties.

+1 on the Comparator. It measures at the ogive.

Or shoot Nosler Ballistic Tips or Hornady A-Max bullets with the polymer tip!!

Then, not to mention:  Media will sometimes get stuck in the tips of your BTHP bullets.
