What Is A Wadcutter? (Bullet)


How to Shoot Fast & Accurately  

The Gun Digest Book Of Concealed Carry


A wadcutter bullet is a specialty bullet made in the shape of a cylinder and with sharp shoulders. It is used for shooting paper targets. Wadcutters cut a very clean and defined hole in the target reducing scoring errors. Because the wadcutter is a flat nose bullet it does not feed well into semi-automatic pistols and therefore used only in revolvers. Wadcutters are usually made of lead. The nose of the bullet may loaded flush with the mouth of the case or it may extend above it.
