Cauterucio Bullets

In case some of you have never tried them, there is a fellow by the name of Bob Cauterucio making some VERY nice custom bullets. They are available in a wide selection of calibers and weights.
These bullets may be the best kept secret out there for the long range hunter. Although many match bullets have a thin jacket, the Cauterucio's are as thick and in some cases thicker, than the Siera MK. They also have higher BC's than the Sierra's in most categories. I will be trying them this fall on deer and will post the results.
The following projectiles will be tested:

6.5, 141 grs. BC-.630
6.5, 129 grs. BC-.610
7mm, 156 grs. BC-.615

The BC's that Bob has are estimations, but seem to be right on when entered in a ballistic program and compared to actual drop.
If you are looking for a new long range hunting bullet, these are definitely worth a try.

    I think I'll stick with MK's and those from LRBT.

    What has the performance of the LRBT been and what caliber have you used them for? What load data do you have?

    I'll 2nd Prime Time's recommendation. I shoot the 156s & 176s in a 7mm Remington Ultramag.

    The 176s achieved a 198-9x in the Wimbledon Cup at Camp Perry last month. They'll shoot....

    Re: Cauterucio Bullets

    I'm using a 220 grain J40. THe load data for that round is 96.0-102.0 grains of RL-25. The load I was using on that one was 97.0 grains. Being stuck here in Minnesota I don't have many to go shooting at long range even though we do have a 1000 yard one, but it is costly. I did get one-hole groups from the 100 yard line believe it or not.
