Distinguished revolver ammunition

Given the open and broad definitions of wadcutter and semi-wadcutter. I'd like opinions on this bullet.

I've had better luck with LRN, so I don't want to vote on your poll.

I would allow those bullets.  They look like Semi-Wadcutter to me.  What does the bullet manufacturer call them?

James;

IMHO there is no open and broad definition.
Wadcutter and semi-wadcutter are two completely different designs.
Your above pic is of semi-wadcutters.

Rob, it wasn't what's best to use, it's what do you consider these...

I also find RN to shoot best, so far... but, like Star Trek, traveling into the unknown ...

Well, if they look like SWC, but the MFR says they are round nose, and they are 158gr, since it's a "Hollow Base Round Nose" bullet and the rule says Semi Wadcutter or Round Nose bullet, it fits that description IMO.

Can you provide details of the reswaging procedure, including the dies used?

What is the part number and source of the original Mag-tech bullets?

Thanks!

Do I understand correctly?  They are re-shaped bullets and then hand loaded? 
The profile looks close to the button nose 45 SWC.

It's a swaging die I made at work. A copy of an old Clymer 7/8th die they used to make.

I'll have to look up the magtech number, but, any swaged rn should work. Just run them in my old RCBS Rockchucker..
