So, I started this recent thread about reloading .303 Brit, and mentioned that I was using these blemished bullets that I'd bought from Midway a couple years ago. I bought 'em thinking "bargain bullets, sweet!" Say's they're "blemished", but they're bullets, and FMJ's to boot. How "blemished" can they be? So I bought 500. What a fool. I reckon that when some minimum-wage dipstick at the bullet factory sets the canneluring machine exactly 1/8", yes, .125", off from where it's supposed to be, then those bullets will qualify as "blemished". Bah. Reckon they'll still go down the barrel is a straight line, I hope.
