Well then, attempt to place 10 rounds the 10 ring, a 3 1/4" circle, at 50 yards, one hand hold in ten minuets. Not so easy ,and defiantly not boring, unless of course a person is of limited discipline and ability, then just blast away as many round as you please.
The S&W m52 is the only auto loader I know of that only shoot wadcutters, great gun but it dose get borring shooting only 5 rounds at a time..
In the process of acquiring a Model 52. Have been using .45ACP for the center fire stage since 1970.
I used the woodcutter's in my Model 52 S&W for the center fire stage of the National Match Tournaments. It was a really excellent combination for that course of fire. As commercially loaded the flush seated woodcutter's are a low powered round designed to punch nice clean holes, clustered in small groups, in paper.

they are accurate because of they are almost totally BEARING SURFACE !!! in handgun ammo bearing surface is everything. double ended , bevel base . are best. see "rifle "117 may june 1988 for excellent info or Ken Waters "pet loads". someone asked about a COLT 1911 .38- Gold Cup MkIII. ask any emergency room doctor or nurse about wadcutters, and then you will use them. they hit and yaw. " three organ bullet" . trim brass for better feeding in a 52. brass is the same. I thought IDEAL came up with wadcutters. I currently load a Valiant 9mm .356 125 bullet and 2.5 of red dot in a S&W52, the bullet being inverted (backwards) very accurate at 25yds. kinda' like a rebated boattail loaded this way, kinda' .
A guy I know was shooting 38 Special Wadcutters. I am pretty unfamiliar with the round but was amazed at the accurracy of this strange looking cartridge. Can anyone explain to me why these things are so accurrate? Also, how suitable are they for animal or human targets? Is the brass any different? Can you reload the brass from a wadcutter back to a regular bullet and vice versa or are you stuck using only wadcutters for wadcutter brass? Who came up with Wadcutters?Thanks.Jason
