During a ammo test secession recently my last round of the test was the Underwood 220 grain, this bullet measured 0.4010" as pulled before the testing and had a full lube groove of what ever red lube was being used by his supplier.

Being the last round and only cast bullet shot, I had plenty of leading in the barrel of my S&W1006 and it was tough to remove...
