    Bought some 180gr HST-have questions

    Hey everyone,

    I ordered a few boxes of 180gr HST, and I noticed that when I look down inside of the hollow point cavity, some of the lead in the cavity is shiny looking, instead of looking dark like most of the others look. Has anyone ever seen this before? Is it anything to be aware of?

    Any help on this is greatly appreciated!

    Color of lead alloy varies with alloy makeup, casting temperature, and age of the alloy. I wouldn't be concerned with what you are describing.
