can anyone tell me what this bullet design is used for and what the pros and cons of the design are?

How about a picture so we can see what you are talking about and what caliber?

I have a cone nose flat based 9mm bullet design developed for Israeli submachine guns for stopping power and it is 135 grains made in a 4 cavity mold by California Saeco. I have sold it as a long range bullet for stopping power and the 50 yard target range.

So please tell us what you have specifically. Caliber, weight, made by whom for what purpose etc.

It is a very good design for general pistol shooting. In most cases it feeds as well round nosed bullets and the flat nose delivers good transfer to steel targets. In addition, the bevel base allows a good start in the seating process and, since the bore/bullet interface is not the bottom of the bullet, it gives a "clean" departure from the bore allowing better accuracy.
It is what I use for IPSC and IDPA in my 45, 40, and 9mm. I use the Lee six cavity molds to cast my bullets.

Thanks for the help guys. I am making up some test loads for a 357 and saw this design at penn bullets and thought it would be good for my purpose. Was just wondering if that was correct. Thanks again for the help.
