Any thoughts on a .301 Bore Ride nose verses a .299 to a .301 tapered nose?

The original was a Bore Ride.

AL;  You will most likely sell more as drawn but for my use everything looks good except I would like the nose tapered from .300 to .302. I have a lot of 30cal bore riders, it's the tapered nose that draws me to this bullet. Thanks Gp

I believe the Ardito designed bullet was meant to fit a throat that was reamed with the same rearmer as tapered  the bump (swagging) die so the taper of the bumped bullets matched the taper in the throat.  That's how John set his records and virtually all the good CB shooters who shot gunsmith built guns followed suit.

What adventage does this type of bullet have for a rifle that doesn't have its throat tapered to match the taper on the bullet over a uniform diameter nose for a bore riding design?

Mel Harris, holds about 25 CBA records with the original Egan design. They have sent two more targets in for him from the Regional match, two weeks ago, for record consideration.

I do not know his freebore lenght or remember the diameter but, I do know that his leade is 1 deg per side and that matches the original tapered, Egan band. Personally, I wouldn't want any part of the bore riding nose, to be less than .300. I think it would loose some of it's accuracy if the nose could move in the lands.

How about modifying one of your paper patch designs. Enlarge the rear three or four driving bands to .311

I have the lighter weight version of this bullet, i may send off to have modified.

Does Mel bump his bullets? The nose shape of the Eagan makes them easier to bump.

BTW ...I designed the bullet in picture (Accurate Molds 31-210M), but have never fired it. I do not have a rifle/barrel set up to shoot it yet.
