Ogive - The curved portion of a bullet ahead of the cylindrical, or shank, section. Also, the radius of this curve, usually expressed in calibers.


Oil Dent - Dent in a cartridge case formed by too much oil or lubricant when sizing. Usually seen on the shoulder of bottleneck cases.


Overbore Capacity
- A common but unscientific term referring to a cartridge case that has too much case volume for its bore volume. Technically, every case can be over its bore capacity with some powder. Generally used when a case has a volume so large in relation to the bore diameter that only the very slow burning powders will give satisfactory performance, or very little velocity is gained by adding more powder.
