    I haven't had the opportunity to be around jacketed bullet manufacturing but from products I have played with they are in the tenths of thousandths manufacturing tolerance, I imagine that is the decimal spot you were thinking of too.

    Even my low buck home brew stuff is in a thousandth or so. The stuff that shoots really well, inside a half thousandth.

    Many do use JHP but I would estimate that the majority of master classified bullseye shooters are still using cast or swaged lead on the 50 yard line. I tend to use the zero 185 SWCHP bullet. It's very accurate at 50 yards when loaded properly. The precision delta 185 SWCHP is also very popular, though u prefer the zero. I know several High Masters that are shooting 200 gr LSWC they cast themselves. Almost all lube with blue angel.

    That all being said, I've used coated lead bullets also. When properly manufactured they are 10 ring capable at 50 yards. The Missouri Bullet 200 grain SWC grooveless bullet is one of these. I've tested them to be capable of sub 3" groups at 50 yards, the 10 ring is 3.3".

    Yes, I worded it incorrectly.
