Re: marks on bullets

Steve, thanks also to you for your service-welcome home. Were you in the 1st Cavalry Division or one of the many other units that are designated Cavalry?

Your offer is most kind and generous. I will send my address via email and would , of course, be happy to compensate you for the bullets. I certainly would like to give them a try,

I read in Spence's book the reference to the hollow base bullet but could find no one offering them and even read somewhere that the hollow base on the 405 was to meet the bullet weight criteria and not for the purpose of expanding the bullet to fill the bore as is on the minie ball. The solid base bullets I have been using have been hitting the black and leading has not been a problem so I assumed all was well but am open to learning and improving.
