The .050 thick by 1.25 inch wide strip is used for longer, thicker, or larger caliber jackets such as a heavy wall .308, 7mm, or .338 caliber, or a medium wall .458 to .358 for heavier weight bullets (with longer jackets).

The specific width and thickness is engineered by the diemakers to best utilize the power and stroke of the press, the least number of draws consistent with good wall concentricity, and other parameters. The volume of metal in the finished jacket must be the same or less than the volume in the initial disk or coin punched from the strip. Greater length, larger caliber, or thicker walls all require more initial volume, which is a function of the square of the width times the thickness (after allowing for a "web" of metal at the edges for feeding and drawing from under the punch edge and pressure pad). Corbin produces a software program to estimate the needed strip width and thickness for a given jacket design.
