    I am using a different kind of bullet in my 9mm Remington pistol. It is Remington's 'Black Belt'. The rear of the bullet is a belt like a 'o' ring around the base. This helps center the bullet in the chamber and line up with the barrel, form a good gas seal and helps scrub off copper residue. Must be some kind of high temp polymer as it does not leave any residue itself. I am sold on the concept. Maybe a ammo Co. could try something like that on rifle bullets. Jim

      Very interesting jimbo. I was not aware of this bullet. I could easily see it working on a 9mm at 35,000 PSI max pressure. I suspect that 60,000 PSI or higher pressure of a rifle bullet just might not work with the polymer. The GS Custom concept would work though with just one raised ring at the back. Since the rifle bullets are typically longer though, it makes sense to add additional rings down the length of the bearing surface like GS Custom does.

        Hammer's work very good. They are more of a typical range to mid-range bullet for hunting big game though. They need speed to work better and their BC's aren't great

          Here is a video of 13" penetration in model clay. I am impressed. The feature I like is the belt centers the bullet in the chamber getting it off to a great start in the barrel.
