    Update, I shot the 425s at 2450 yds today. They are stable and very consistent at that distance. I am ordering more of them to do more testing. The Longrange accuracy seems to good to be true. I need to send 100 or so at 2000 plus before sharing specifics.

    100 rounds- That sounds like a nice day or two at the range. Keep us informed on the results.

    Looking forward to your report Augustus. Glad it is going well. I won't say all the groups I have shot at 2000 plus were surprisingly tight, but some where small enough to make you say "holy crap" I understand your wanting to confirm.

    I don't think I would want to torch this thing off 100 times in a day. 10 is about my limit.

    I fired the last three of the 425s today. Wind was waffling around but was almost imperceptible. The first two rds were fired at 1770 yds, both rds landed in a white 12 in spot on red background. One Rd was about 1 inch inside at 3 and the other was just inside at 9. I changed locations and fired at a rock at 2515 yds. Smoke boiled of the rock, the rock is about 36 by 36 inches.

    I'm going to go ahead and declare these bullets out of a 13-6.5 gain twist are ready to be marketed. CE will be sending me another 100 of these So I'm ready to start having fun.

    Just a reminder, I don't have any connection to Bartlien barrels or Cutting Edge other than I bought the barrel and have tested the bullets. I have received no compensation from either of these folks and Do not expect any in the future.

    Good to see they are working for you as well, but for all those wonting to give them a go, while 6.5 twist may work that tight a twist isn't need to keep them flying, when we finish testing we will be able to give people more of an idea what is needed.
