Isn't that a bit heavy for a plated bullet?

Nothing wrong with that. In fact, you should add more crimp. Lots more.

Those look like dumdum rounds. How did they shoot? The one on the right needs more lube :whistling:

Just a pic I found on line. I think the guy was trying to make a .460 version of the .22lr.

Well Duh! Aren't you supposed to crimp after you seat them, not before! :dunno:

You are? Are you sure? Do you have any evidence to support your theory?

Thats a prefect example of using the wrong crimp- should be a slight taper not roll crimp. I'd bet groups were real - wide!:rofl::whistling::rofl:

That's what my plated bullets used to look like - until I called RCBS & ordered a taper crimp die for my 44 mag. If there is no cannelure on the bullet (like those three in your photo), a roll crimp has nowhere to go & digs into the bullet.

They look real good. But you need to hammer the tips of the ones on the left and right some more... like you did the middle one. I can't say enough good about a big, big hammer when reloading. ;-)

If those are plated the jacket will separate as it leaves the barrel causing the bullet to tumble.

Trust me I had this exact problem over crimping plated bullets.

How would one get these bullets out of the cases? It looks like that would be difficult if they were so tightly crimped.

That case likely buckled it was crimped so much. Probably had very little neck tension at all.
