I found these bullets at Graf's:

I didn't see loaded ammo, but didn't really look, either.

Loaded them to 7n1 (Soviet sniper round) specs, as closely as I could get, anyway.

The rounds shown are partially-resized cases, which, in a tapered round like this, really is just neck-sized.

The rest are full-length resized as they're made from once-fired brass I got from someone on this forum.

The one thing I noticed is that the cannelure does not seem to be in the same spot on all of them. Most, but not all. I thought I had partially collapsed the shoulders when sizing, but it really doesn't look like it. The case lengths are uniform as are COALs after loading. (3" long exactly.)

Can't wait to see how these shoot! I've been looking for a sharp-point expanding bullet that didn't have an exposed lead point. These things should be hell on coyotes!
