Plated Berry's wadcutters AND speed
I just find this odd and even called Berry's
to see if sumpin' was specific due to a failure of some nature.....
although I can't imagine what.
Only the .38/.357 DEWC and the HBWC plated projectiles
have a 'warning' so to speak:
".38 Cal 148gr DEWC
QUALIFIES FOR FREE FREIGHT ON ORDERS OVER $50.00
When loading for these bullets, you need to use data that will attain 800 fps as a minimum. Most of the data for this bullet weight was created using a dead soft lead projectile with velocities under the 800 fps and will not work for a this bullet at those lower velocities."-per Berry's website
These are plated lead, not jacketed.
Nominally wadcutters are seated deeper than other projectiles, so a difference in inside combustion than a HP or SP or whatever.
When I load 'cowboy loads' let's say, at 750fps with a lead wadcutter,
675fps or 725fps etc. are fine......why would 'these' NEED to
be at a minimum of 800fps......
somehow I can't grasp the reason......
Technical reason.......not guesses please.....'cause my brain doesn't grip
on this one, unless 'someone' had a problem, some dumbass failed on his part, and tried to blame Berry's for something.........and they are just CYA and not
going in to detail when asked......
OR.....it is simple.....and senility has set in on me [and then, how would I know]
