50-95 WCF bullet?


#1

On a recently acquired “W R A Co 50-95 W.C.F.” I notice that the bullet has a copper insert in the nose. This insert (.210) is smaller than the flat/meplat (.279) and has a raised “X” on it.
What is it?

The man who’s collection it came from passed away in 1963, so it’s kind of hard to ask him.

The bullet was referred to as an Express bullet one of the ideas to help sell the better expanding bullet at lower velocities. Its hyp was better that its function. Vic

If you look at the cross section of the 2009 June you will see what the inside of the bullet looks like. Vic
