This is completely off topic here, but when I first saw the Title of this thread --- Colored Bullets --- it reminded me of a match held at the Pioneer Gun Club in Kansas City a couple of years ago.
Larry Rickertsen was shooting an 03-A3 in an Issue Military Match and had used a red marker on each cast bullet to orientate each bullet in the chamber. There was light rain that morning and the targets were wet.
When we would go down to change out the targets after a string, by far the majority of the holes would show a red streak on the wet target indexed at say the 5 o'clock position.
I am not trying to say that they all indexed in that position, but way more then could be expected from any random distribution --- amazing considering the hundreds of revolutions those bullets made before going thru the target at 100 yards.
