    Ok, strange question. What exactly is a wad cutter and what is it designed to do. I am in the process of purchasing a S&W 442 and looking for the best ammo for edc / range time.
    Thanks!

    Wad cutters are made with a hollow base that expands with the pressure generated burning the powder. This leads to good accuracy, and the shape allows the bullet to cut a clean hole in paper. The loads are usually reduced power target loads.
