Re: Filing or cutting bullet tips.
main thing is centre balance
i cut the nose off new projectiles and counter sink em for a pig's blood , salt and gelatine mix
i use a lathe with a centre drill and cut off tool
zing, burrr, done, do the next one
the shoulder of the jacket takes all the wear of friction ,
i think they guy was trying hard to sell stuff
i have seen home made jacketed rounds do what you stated , theres a youtube of one
but a manufactured projectile is as good as it gets
never heard of it doing that unless there was pitting in the bore before it was fired
pitting in the bore can strip or partially strip jackets and bulge barrels and make blockages
but thats the pitting doing that ...
