Re: 6.5 X 284 VLD Lost River bullets
I personally feel that the LRB bullets are advertised for use with rifle twists that are not compatible for the extreme length of the bullets they offer.
If a 240 gr SMK needs a 1-9 twist with a .720 B.C. and they say a 220 gr J-40 with a B.C. of .930 needs basically the same twist, I think something is wrong.
I feel they are trying to get the absolute highest B.C. possible without doing the testing in actual rifles to see if these things will shoot.
Solid bullets work great in the larger calibers in the VLD and ULD form but I feel this is becasue they have alot of mass. A 220 gr bullet that is 2" long seems pretty light for that length and would wonder if this is a ballance issue more then anything.
Spending $40 for 20 bullets is flat out silly in my mind for anything under .510" caliber and 750 gr in weight.
Never have been impressed with their performance and by the sounds if it never will be unless the price drops considerably.
