Discuss Pros and Cons to carrying semi auto plus one


What’s that? How does it help?


If you look closely at the pic below, you’ll see a small ring/groove in the bullet above the mouth of the casing. That is the cannelure. When the cartridge is created, the bullet is seated to the depth of the cannalure during the loading process. If it’s still visible, you are good…if it disappears into the casing, it’s time to get rid of it.



this line
not that line


The lower one…right above the case mouth.


Looks like a dotted line?


Yep…that’s the one.


Thanks, good to know.


You’re welcome!


I figured out a way to screw up seating a bullet with a cannelure… when you have a revolver and figure case length isn’t all that important… you end up with bullets too long for the cylinder to rotate :flushed::flushed::flushed:


:grin: Sounds like you need a bullet shaver :rofl::rofl:
