Those were all installed on customer's lead. I do use them though in 30 caliber rifle & some 45/70 loads.

Yeah I'm hoping to use more when I move. I spent Most of this year stocking up. Getting difficult to get supplies in Massachusetts. Hope it's better in nc.

They go on the base of a lead bullet. It is to keep the hot gases from melting the bullet as it travels down the barrel. They are usually made of copper.

They also keep gasses from escaping past the bullet in the chamber, (sort of like a 'seal')... which can reduce velocity and accuracy...:cool:

Used on cast Magnum and rifle rounds...:cool:
