Re: Got my brass in

Well I don't think the gs bullet is going to work . its a .587 diameter not .585.
but a member on here is going to help me with using cad software to draw up a bullet then I can just have them lathe turned . really I only need something with a bc of .525 or in that ball park . gs says a 1 in 18 twist will stabilize their 1015 . so im think if I stay below that weight I should be good to go. I wonder what is the most BC I can get out of a 750gr .585 diameter ? it should get them up to 2700 fps. yeah a 50 bmg would to but a lot less barrel life. that was one of my main points I wanted power but 10k plus barrel life . Ive read that straight wall magnums can have a throat last 20k rounds

You could screw those onto your handle bars with tassels out the primer holes!

Looks like a brass stoogie to me.

I think I'd call cutting edge bullets and have them build some. They are all turned pills with their riding bands. Lots easier than a home brew pill, they do that stuff everyday.
