There's really no need to bond a bullet as large as that used in the .577 NE. Nevertheless, the Woodleigh Weldcore is bonded (hence the name Weldcore).
If only British fun makers made their guns capable of firing Monolithic solids :(

It needs to be taken on a case-by-case basis. Some mono-metal solids are easier on barrels than others (different materials, less bearing surface, more relief bands, etc.) and some of the old doubles can handle any (none of the newer ones will ruin a barrel like the A-Square bullets appear to have).

And, of course, when it comes to doubles there's always the matter of regulation. In this regard, when it comes to old doubles, Woodleigh's jacketed bullets (solid and soft) are usually best as they adhere to the original Kynoch in form.

Problem is The Woodleigh FMJ solids loaded by Norma are relatively low Velocity. Look at Norma's .505 Gibbs Magnum 600 grain FMJ Round nosed bullets. Only a velocity of 2100 fps. Such a waste of potential ! :(
