I’m new to shooting cast bullets in rifles and came from the long range jacketed bullet shooting game (600 to 1,000 yards). Looking at some of the equipment lists in “The Fouling Shot” and searching mold maker’s websites; I’m surprised that there aren’t more spitzer or high ballistic coefficient ogive style bullets being used. Looking at the .30 cal. equipment list , most are shooting very blunt ogive shaped bullets at velocities approaching and exceeding 2,000 FPS. Why the blunt shape more then a more pointed ogive bullet. Is it because it is difficult to manufacture molds with a spitzer shape ? Is it more difficult to cast a spitzer shaped bullet ? Are the blunt nose bullets more accurate at cast bullet velocities then spitzer or round nose bullets ? Do the long nose blunt bullets allow more bearing surface then a pointed bullet ?
What am I missing here ?
