    In his book “Guns, bullets and gunfights”, Jim Cirillo refers to his preferred wadcutter design as sharp edged and cupped. Is the sharp edge straight or angled? Also, is the ‘cupped’ part a shallow, or deeper, saucer shape? I have molded different wadcutters over the years but not a steep dish design, if that is what he is referring to; and would like to pour some. Are the molds available?

    I still have box of those 260 grain .45 acp Kawser "Pin Grabbers" I actually tried them in a match out of my bull barreled New Service Custom .45 acp revolver. I never shot them on flesh or anything but they do throw the pins off table REAL good :)

    The Cirillo design inspired these; the Manstopper. Unfortunately, they are no longer available.

    Jammin’ thanks all!
    That ‘manstopper’ pic looks like someone built a mold cavity around a hex key, interesting!
