Doc Holloman Posted March 1 Share Posted March 1 A head’s up for those of you that shoot .38-40 rifle for Wild Bunch. I recently ordered a batch of .40 caliber 180gr coated bullets from a well known manufacturer. Since 180gr is the minimum for WB rifle, I routinely weigh each bullet before loading. Usually I get 20 percent that are underweight ( I set a minimum of 181gr just to account for material that might get shaved in the seating process) and I set those aside for practice. But when I weighed this batch, more than 70 percent were under 180 gr, and none exceeded 181. I had hoped to use these bullets for a major match next month, but they are going in the practice bin. This is the first time I have ordered this caliber from this particular manufacturer, and have been happy with previous bullet (.30-06, .357, and .45ACP). I’ve let him know about my issue and told him I will use the bullets for practice, so I’m not looking for any refund or anything like that. Just giving him, and you folks a head’s up. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
