Guys, forgive me if I have asked this before but I can't find an archive of it. I am reorganizing my ammo stash and have three boxes (in Dillon boxes, not originals) of Winchester 38 special ammo. The lead bullet(?) is flush with the end of the brass. What is this stuff?
Thanks,

It's too late for me, save yourself.

Those would be wadcutters and they do that to provide initial resistance to improve ballistics. Although, I could be wrong. Vaq, where are you buddy?
