Default HP from SP?

Before anyone tell me about the thread that was pretty similar to this, I've already read it. But that was to do with handguns and a SD load out.

Even though it's the same thing and I don't plan on ever actually doing it, I was just wondering what your guys thought on it is?

What "it" would be is using a sharp tool to cleanly take the small bit of lead that sticks out the tip of a SP round and then either firing it like that or taking the tip of something and making a small indentation by taking some of the lead out.

At rifle speeds, i would think any minor mistakes in balancing the projectile (took too much out on this edge) would become even more of a problem with accuracy.

I also think you would be taking a silly risk unless you are talking about working on that projectile seperate from its case of propellant. BOOM, no thumb; the chimps at the zoo would laugh at your lack of opposable thumb.

Haha that chimp comment honestly made me laugh, which isn't all to often while reading. But I was referring to using any type of power tool. Just using something like the tip of a screw driving and spinning it slowly.

As for accuracy, I wouldn't expect a whole lot any ways. Just think it would be interesting to use for water jugs and other inanimate objects so it wouldn't matter where I hit them at.

Try it out with hand tools if you want. Take a file to the tip, small philips head screw driver to hollow it a little. Just remember what was said in the other thread about the copper bullet sleeve getting stuck in the barrel. I don't know how plausible that really is, but be safe and assume so.

That was my plan, just keep scoring it where the jacket meets the copper and score through until it's off and then use something to basicaly burrow into it. That tool you put a link to came to mind, but I'm not sure if it would work with X39 or if just the X25.

When it comes to the jacket being left behind, in my mind the way the slug is shaped it shouldn't have as big a chance as a hand gun round. But that's just my way of looking at it, I'd still shoot one round and then check the barrel for the jacket just I case.
