i've seen a few references to so-called woodleigh "solids". however, when i checked out woodleigh's website, i didn't see any bullet that they were referring to as a solid. does anyone know what these solid bullets are supposed to be? is this possibly a reference to their full-metal jacket bullets?

yeah i think the "weldcore" is a reference to the bonding technology they use to bond the jacket to the core. this is from their website:

"Weldcore – the secret to maximum retained weight and reliable controlled expansion. All Woodleigh Round Nose, Protected Point, Semi-Point and Flat Nose bullets are constructed with pure lead cores using the Weldcore technology."

but still i couldn't find any reference to a solid bullet on their website...

well if i used a bullet like that i imagine it would be good for big hogs or grizzlies. i was mainly just curious about them. from what i understand from my readings, the dangerous game hunters will use a soft point for their initial shot, and then if they need a follow up shot, they will use a solid. my guess is that the solid is for a brain shot.

in any case, i did see the reference to a "solid" bullet on their website, and it is their FMJ bullet that they are referring to. i'm just surprised that they refer to this bullet as a "solid" since it has a jacked core.

i guess i'm just being pedantic :P

You might wish to reference http://www.woodleighbullets.com.au/FMJ3.html

also Barnes makes a true solid http://www.barnesbullets.com/products/rifle/banded-solids/

with a flat point thet some say avoids deflection better than a round nose solid.

Interesting on several levels, I had filed away the Woodleigh in the mental folder and it got lost in all the other folders. I have every intention of looking into this one just a bit.

those a-square bullets look really good. thanks for mentioning them. they have some pictures of some of their solids that were recovered from elephants. those bullets did not appear to be deformed at all!

their "dead tough" soft points look really good too for a general purpose bullet.
