I want to thank you.
Here is a screen capture of what I'm looking at:

I have this posted on at least 10 boards, and there is a 50/50 split between opinions as to whether the double is at 6 o'clock or 1 o'clock. I initially thought it was at 1, but I agree now that it was at 6.
I'm also learning new terms. What is a "plug"? What is a "moving backer"?
I'm just a po' ol' squirrel hunter who is trying to make bulk ammo take squirrel at 100yds.
The bullets were reshaped first into a consistent roundnose configuration, then into a flatpoint, using D Rock's tool. This is why the target looks to have been hit with wadcutters.
The idea is to have a killing bullet, but one that is also accurate, and that means that, since for the majority of the way the bullet would be travelling subsonic (after 30yds or so), that it needed a shape better tailored to subsonic speeds. I also figured that getting there soon would be best, and the flat point is sort of a brake most noticable at supersonic speeds.
Also, this is really part of my attempt to get 1MOA with bulk HP.
Looks like I am shooting 1.048MOA or so.
Maybe this stuff just isn't capable of MOA accuracy? I do not know. I do know that this group was relatively easy after firing hundreds upon hundreds sorted by weight - only to have it recommended to me that I try sorting by case head thickness. That seems to have done it. I actually watched that bottom hole appear, and I wondered if I had hit it twice as I could see the white plastic backing through the hole as the woods were getting dark.
There were no other shooters; this is my private range. It maxes out at 110 yards or so, but is only really usable out to 100yds.
Thanks again, and additional comments are most welcome.
