    .310-.311 in 123-125 grain weight for 7.62x39 to legally hunt with something more stout than a crappy light soft point.

    All the people asking for heavy bullets... you realize they'd be huge, right? Being solid copper the bullets are much longer than their lead cored counterparts. A 400gr .458" bullet would be the size of a 550+ grain lead core bullet. The Barnes 180gr .308's I have are longer than the Hornady 208gr AMAX I have. I can only imagine how long a 75gr .224" solid copper would be.

    Probably close to tracer length. 1:7 should stabilize.

    Edit. Copper has a higher density than steel so not terrible.

    considering copper is 78% the weight of lead, a 400gn copper projectile would be roughly the size of a typical 500gn lead projectile. How in the HELL are you going to chamber a 600gn copper projectile in ANYTHING???
