Hey Ken, That is a good point. I believe Steve had mentioned something about alloys in an earlier reply. I would assume that with 500 grains you just do not have the extra "space" for any deformation/ widening of a bullet that may occur while loading unlike 405 grain. Simply for the sheer fact that there is less mass present. So alloy mixtures have to be chosen with care. I think I will probably order some of the 405 grain bullets to start with plus a lot of the other guys say the 500 grains can be rough on the ol shoulder.
