I have a Lee mold that throws a nice 155 gr pointed bullet and have been wondering about their use as pointed bullets seem to work with jackets at even below 2000 fps. Some have used 30-30's with a pointed bullet in the chamber to shoot at longer ranges. I have read some using the 45-70 with the heavy pointed bullets with poorer results, but they were used at maybe 1200 fps muzzle velocity. If spitzer can work at lower velocities why couldn't these. Have to test them I guess, I do use water hardened bullets with annealed noses. Maybe that would work?
