    I remember seeing those along time ago. A few bullet makers were doing that to the bases.
    I remember Wendel Coye doing that also. Some of the shooters though it aided accuracy.

    Someone will correct me if wrong - I believe the .224 & 6mm Remington BR bullets were of like style . . . not as pronounced - even more shame if I'm incorrect, as I went through the better part of 10,000 of them. RG

    So they were primarily used in the 6BR

    My first custom bullets consisted of about 175 6mm Malsby that had a slight indentation in the base. I'm pretty sure those bullets are 90% the cause of my continuation. They were really good bullets!

    Randy they shot fairly well. not quite as good as today,s bullets though.
    Remington had a core lock bullet with the concave base. I had some 55gr pills that shot really well.
    Today,s bullets are a lot better.

    A couple of years ago, I bought some 22 cal 50 and 55 gr PLHP bullets that had concaved bases like that. I only shot them in a factory rifle and they shot fairly good.
