Well, I guess it would have happened sooner or later. Wideners is now selling Russian Bulk Bullets. They are "Bi-Metal" jackets, thick copper cover on the outside and thin soft steel inside.
Hmmmmmmm.... ...
54 dollar american for 1000 62 grain soft points.
That's the only 62 grain soft points I've seen.
Maybe in my chrome lined barrel bushmaster.

I would be interested in finding out if anyone has put a thermocouple on a barrel and compared barrel temp after 100 rounds of copper jacket vs 100 rounds of bi-metal jacket. Not very scientific but I'm interested if finding out if there is a downside to the bi-metal.

Yours in cheep science
