Semiwadcutter (SWC) bullets have always been among the most popular revolver bullets in magnum calibers, due in no small part to the legendary Elmer Keith helping bring about not just magnum revolvers, but also the heavy bone-shattering bullets “Keith-style” bullets that those revolvers typically use for hunting.

YouTuber TWANGnBANG recently got his hands on a new and unique attempt to improve on the penetrating performance of a SWC, while incorporating some of the tissue destroying power of jacketed hollowpoints with a unique machined copper design offered by Lehigh Defense.

I suspect that this would be an awesome bullet for light to medium game, and would do a heck of a job on whitetail deer, coyotes, or two-legged varmints.
