    Hi Fred,

    Could you elaborate a bit on “shallow?” Half cup diameter? Also, I’m not set on the 25:1 alloy but it seemed to be about right based on the testing pics I’ve seen of yours here and at hollow point molds website. Thanks.

    I’m sorry, I just realized Outpost has already answered this. Apologies. And thanks.

    Also just found this gem from Outpost in the archives. It’s coincidental that you reference the Gold Dot in here as one of my first thoughts when I set out on this project was that I wanted a 350 grain boolit that expands like a GD. Anyway, thanks again for sharing your experiences. I’ve found my HP design. Click image for larger version.
