.243 Wadcutter?


No, this is not an ‘April Fool’ joke. This is 100% serious…..

In fact it is a round of .243 calibre rifle ammunition, loaded by a very well known American manufacturer, that somehow escaped their quality control system.

What you are looking at is a 100g Soft Point Boat Tail bullet loaded upside down!

When brought to their attention, the response was that it “would have gone down the barrel OK, but might not have been very accurate”.

Not really what you want to hear, is it? At least all the other rounds in the box of 20 were loaded with bullets pointing in the right direction.
