Do you guys found any major difference in accuracy, ballistics and price between the solid brass and the Punch bullets designs? Swaging the lead would add in labor and price to the punch bullet.
I did a quick calculation and found .429 bullets with the same length will weigh 250 grain in solid brass and Punch bullet will weigh roughly 285 grain if the lead core is 3/8 in diameter and 5/8 long.

the punch bullet is bronze and brass with the lead in the base for weight only.as far as accurate goes.i never met an animal that would stand around long enough to get a three shot group in the kill zone so i could admire it.the punch goes through and kills.
its not a 1/4 moa.its not a 2 inch moa,its better if you can shoot straight.just my findings.
