semi-wadcutter vs. round flat
Does anyone have any practical experience with the relative "smack" differences between a traditional semi-wadcutter bullet and the newer styles called the RF, or round, flat nose bullets?
It seems to me that the larger meplat of the RF would make it a better stopper, for either 4-legged or 2-legged animals.
Specifically, I want to start casting for a .38 special, short barrel, and want to cast a relatively soft 150-158gr bullet. It also seems like the RF would be easier to drop into the chambers without hanging on the shoulder.
open for discussion...
