Throwin Lead said:I use both a TC (truncated cone) and a FP (flat point) in lead(165, 180 & 200 gn) loaded to an OAL of 1.125 or 1.30 with no feeding issues. The key component that I found is to case guage each round. Even though I use a EGW die to resize I find maybe 5 in a thousand that don't pass muster with the case gauge. In all cases it the brass not the bullet - I didn't resize them well enough.
Never tried a SWC. I would be curious to hear from others as well but in my case if ain't broke don't fix it - I get good results with both accuracy and feeding with what I use.
