    Default Can anyone help in identifing the manufacture of thes bullets

    I recently came across about 50 concave FMJ based bullets. 158 Gr, .357 jacked hollow cavity. The internet indicates they may be Speer. I called them and they were not very helpful, they would not give me any information. Perry from Speer told me older bullets should not be used.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    I tried to attach a photo but the forum will not permit. It is a .jpg photo.

    Photo is probably too big, get it to under a meg and see what happens.

    Sounds like possibly Everglades ammo bullets. I know they had several calibers with concave bases

    Thanks for the info *Klutch*. I looked up Everglades bullets and the concave base is not jacketed. The ones I have are full jacked (including the base) except for the tip. I tried reducing the size of the image but it didn't work.

    File size upload limit is 1MB, regardless as to any text you may see stating any larger size. Today's cell phones have too high of a resolution, which results in large file sizes.

    If working from a computer with Windows 10 or 11, you can resize the pictures with Microsoft Paint. Select the pixels option, 1024x768 or 1440x1080 are a good sizes for most monitors/screens and puts the file size between 150KB to 600KB, well under the 1MB limit.

    If trying from a phone - GOYABEAN's suggestion above is probably the best.
