A general query to those that have used BTB's lapping bullets:  What style of bullet is used for the lapping bullet (LBT, SWC etc), how many come with each order, and how are they sized (in my case, 45 Colt).

God Bless.

Alan,

I've lapped four revolvers (one .45LC) with the Beartooth lapping bullets. They're 100/box, 12 BHN, LBT style bullets that, if memory serves me correctly, are .002/.003 oversize (intentionally so).
They appear to be what I would call a WFN style, giving a lot of surface area.

halfbreed,

They have a healthy lube cavity and a crimping channel.
