What Is Cannelure Of A Bullet?
Cannelure is the circumferential groove or
marking around a bullet. It is used in conjunction with
crimping to secure the bullet to the case. Other uses may
include identification purposes or to hold lubricant. All
bullets do not have them. Tools are sold to make cannelures
on bullets for specific purposes.
