35 wheeler bullet design

Post by aseedylot » Wed Apr 22, 2015 11:16 am

Working on a bullet for 35 whelen bolt action rifle on a mauser 98 action. The throat length of the rifle is .250. Tried screen shot of design but could not make it work. I was thinking of a 255 grain bullet. Front band diameter of .36 with a length of .18. Nose length of .375. Meplat 73 percent. This was with TAN bullet design. I was thinking either a 4 or 5body bands. What are you thoughts? Thanks for the help.
