Someone needs to send Lapua a letter telling them their fine FMJ match bullets will ruin fine match grade barrels. Mayby they'll stop selling them.
Most bullet making companies use the same jacket material for both FMJ sporting bullets and precision hollow point match bullets. How in the dickens will one effect any barrel differently than the other?
What about all those FMJ match grade pistol bullets shot winning matches and setting records? Who's gonna tell those folks the bullets they use are bad for their match grade barrels?
If anyone feels FMJ's are bad for any barrel, that's fine, you can't go to jail for what you're thinking. But such belief's fly in the face of reality. This is one of many myths in the shooting sports. But some folks cannot reason away from it; too bad for them, but such is life.
