Split Nose feed configuration/length

should be set to match that of the shortest readily available factory jhp, for which there is a matching bullet for reloaders. Then you only need to test each "duty" magazine with 2 mags-full of the duty ammo. Of course, this is after having tested the duty mags extensively with the reloaded jhp. Further testing of the gun can then be done with the jhp over the years. If you've put together or bought 100 rds of the Split Noses, you'll have plenty for a decade, even if you do shoot a few animals with it to test its terminal performance. If you're one of these idiots who insists on having a dozen double stack mags "in rotation' for ccw, that's your problem. There's no reason to bother with more than one spare mag.Mark those 2 duty mags and use the others only for competition and practice. Double stack mags are silly in the first place. Especially for a pocket gun.

"normal" jhp loads are NOT well proven to stop people, ya know. Repeat hits with the typical wimp loads don't raise reasonable expectations of a stop by all that much, either. Once you start shooting, getting those repeat hits can become very difficult, cause he's shooting back, moving, using cover. So it behooves you to deliver all the tissue damage and shock that you can, with each hit.

Once again (for the "I don't know how-many-eth time"), "how"..? How is the bullet shaped? What does it look like? You say it's no big deal to do with a "hacksaw and dremel", so show us.

A 70-grain cylinder (or disc) of copper that's .451" in diameter is 0.19" in thickness. There's no way around that, it's just unavoidable, mathematical reality. Put another way, thickness is 42% of diameter, darn near the ratio (38% thickness-to-diameter) of a hockey puck in shape, to give a visual reference.

I've asked repeatedly - how do we turn basically this shape:


and - while keeping the diameter unchanged - turn it into something shaped like a "short, readily-available factory JHP"..?

We can turn it into a round-nose shape by hollowbasing it enough to shape it into something resembling the old "baby moon" hubcaps of the 60's if anyone remembers those:


I get how that's doable. But it's still just a cross between a wadcutter and an extremely-stubby FMJ.

But you say that your design not only has two points on the front, it's also long enough so that each half of the bullet (when split in half lengthwise) is longer than the .451" diameter of the bullet.

For a full-on manufacturing facility, it's almost certainly possible to do; they could cast odd, thin-wall shapes close to that weight, if not all the way down completely to that 70 grains. But how does a guy do as you say to do it - start with a 1/2" copper bar, and create it with a hacksaw and dremel tool?

I'll post whatever I want. Black talons were tested in 2001, .45 gold cup, failed to expand.

You need to get a new attitude.

Please quote references for that statement.

He won't cause he never invented them. Much less every shot one.

Well, I wish you genuinely 'wanted' to spread the word about this awesome bullet design you speak of, and that you say we should all be using.

You must not really 'want' to talk about it, because when asked about it, you refuse to answer.

you know all about it, right, Joe? you were at my side during all those years of silencer making and having a dozen guns as a felon, right? that makes you guilty of mis-prison of a felony, on top of welding shut that air compressor full of silenced .22's. Maybe ATF will come talk to you about that, still? wanna find out?

I've said it many times John; if you'd be civil, so would I.

Ok motard, I've never met Joe and don't have a personal dog in this current tantrum of yours, but stupidity and ignorance sometimes just screams out for the shedding of light.

First, "mis-prison" is not a word. I assume you're talking about "misprision", but sometimes one just can't tell for sure when trying to communicate using big-boy words with the retarded cousin.

And secondly, unless it happened in or after November of 2013 he could post video of it with no worries if he wanted to. Because the statute of limitations on NFA violations is three years. But I'm sure you knew that. I mean as much as you pontificate about NFA stuff and as much as you pontificate about being an "outlaw", you surely MUST know something that basic and elementary. Right?

All hail King Motard...

Back to YOUR topic; the topic that YOU brought up here in YOUR thread... You still haven't explained or demonstrated how this non-existent bullet of YOUR design, gets home-shop fabricated into reality; something that doesn't exist only in the 'Fiction' section...
