No offense taken. Just a discussion is all and difference of opinion, no reason to be offended.
What you said was; "I don't know why anybody is still surprised when they discover that bullets with rounded edges and/or frosted bullets shoot just as well as the most shiny and sharp edged casting." There in you made a distinction between the frosty bullets with rounded edges with those bullets being shiny and having sharp edges. Many of us consider frosty bullets and/or with rounded edges as having defects. Point being they do not shoot as well, especially past 50 yards, as do shiny bullets with sharp edges. The reason being they are unbalanced. The higher the velocity and the longer the range the less accurate they will be. Sometimes that is a lot and other times it isn't.
However, as I mentioned, "I will agree with John that if one does not have a rifle of sufficient accuracy/precision potential and the shooting skill to use it then discarding such bullets really doesn't make much sense........Even though I visual and weight sort (properly) the bullets I use for match shooting [both military and commercial rifles] I do shoot many such bullets as shown in numerous other rifles because they are not capable of using the sorted bullets any better. " Thus we appear to be harmoniously in agreement.....
I, as do many others, consider frost on a bullet to be a "defect" as are "rounded edges". Thus those are culled out in the visual inspection of the bullet prior to proper weight sorting. I'm not familiar with the search engine on this forum but will attempt to find the threads we discussed this in and post it.
Okay, you might try this thread where we had a discussion on eliminating defective bullets through visual culling and proper weight sorting. Also the last post where I show results at 600 yards with 11 shots in slightly less than mow. That is with weight sorted shiny cast bullets with no rounded corners at 2900 fps muzzle velocity.
Concealment is not cover.........
