Weldcore Soft Nose BulletsAs a general rule Woodleigh RN and PP bullets generate similar pressures to conventionally constructed soft nose bullets. You can use published data from other bullet and powder manufacturers. For safety, reduce by 5% and work up. Ensure that the case neck has a good grip on the bullet.
Full Metal Jacket Bullets
Woodleigh steel jacketed FMJ's generate more pressure than our soft nose bullets for any given load.To assist the barrel's lead to engrave the rifling on the bullet, most Woodleigh FMJ's are 0.0005" to 0.001" under nominal diameter. It is important for the case neck to have a good grip on the bullets, especially when loading for dangerous game.Factors which affect the grip are:-Bullet diameter and inside neck diameter. Inside neck diameter is a product of case neck wall thickness, die neck diameter and neck plug diameter. As a general rule, start with a charge 5% below that used for soft nose bullets, and work up.
Hydrostatically Stabilised BulletsThese bullets generate similar pressures to our soft nose, so you can use your soft nose loads for the same weight/calibre.

LOADS FOR HEAVIER THAN STANDARD WEIGHT BULLETS
For hunters who prefer heavy bullets at moderate velocity, we offer heavy bullets in selected calibres some of which current data is not available.
We do not recommend compressed loads for spherical powders although such powders do offer excellent loading density.
For extruded powder, light compression is fine, but heavily compressed loads with both spherical and extruded powders can cause erratic ignition or misfires, especially if loaded for a considerable length of time.
All the reloading data in this site should be used with caution. Never use the heaviest recommended powder charge until lighter charges of the same powder have been tried and found safe in each individual gun. All data contained herein is derived from various sources and is believed to be entirely safe when used in properly made firearms that are in good, safe mechanical condition and chambered for the respective cartridge. Since Woodleigh Bullets have no control over the choice of components, the manner in which they are assembled, or the arms the resulting ammunition may be used in, no responsibility – either expressed or implied – is assumed for the use of this data.

Comments. This bullet just stabilises with a standard 10” twist. Some rifles shoot quite accurately with this bullet. Rifles with a barrel twist faster than 1 in 10” are fine.
