Hawk Bullets currently has a similar approach but with 2 main jacket thicknesses in the 44: .025 and .035".

I have not used the Hawk Bullets but they can supply unusual configurations should you be in need.
He seems to be a major source for loading the Wildey magnum auto pistols for instance.
They also crow about their jackets being pure soft annealed copper (lowering the friction) and the cores being pure lead.
They don't mention how much more of that soft copper is left in your bores.

I run out of the few 280 gr. Woodleigh Weldcores I have, I may take a look at Hawk.

The A-Frames have quite high friction due to the long straight shank and the fact part of that shank is in effect a solid.
Their published velocities support this theory.
I'll run them in the Redhawk and the Encore both of which have thick, hard, barrels but would hesitate to run them in the double with it's thinner barrels especially near the muzzle.
