stuck in the bore.
Cartouche 8mm balle M--in 1895 changes to the cartridge case and bullet jacket
led to the Lebers cartridge being designated the 8mm Balle M (for Modifie--Modified).
He selected cartridge brass (70 percent copper and 30 percent zinc) because it is stiffer than gilding metal, the commonly used bullet jacket
, and it also has a higher yield and tensile strength.
450 KRUGER Regulates the sale of ammunition; requires imprinting of a serial number on each bullet jacket
and bullet lead; requires sellers of ammunition to maintain records of all sales; makes a violation a class A misdemeanor.
They have taken copper bullet jacket

Q What is the best method to remove copper or bullet jacket
fouling from a rifle bore?
In 1895 changes to the cartridge case and bullet jacket
material led to it being designated the 8mm Balle M (for Modifie--Modified) although the ballistics remained unchanged.
There can be bullet jacket
damage, which can lead to "blown up" bullets if we're shooting something like a 40 grain at max velocity.
When it comes to achieving top accuracy from any rifle, two things must be kept in mind; bullet jacket
and powder residue fouling must not be allowed to accumulate excessively in the bore, and the more powder we burn in a particular bore size, the more often it must be cleaned in order to maintain top accuracy.
There are a few instances where you can use an empty case as a bullet jacket
In theory the small, shallow lands grip the bullet jacket
gently, causing less deformation of the bullet, yet gripping it adequately for complete stabilization.
