Paul,

The concentricity is as accurate as the bearings in the machine. The listed accuracy for the machines used is .0001"

Re: Idaho Mule Deer and Elk

Paul,

The reason I asked about how close you can get to the lands is because of the differences in the 2 designs. I knew you couldn't get close to the lands because the bore diameter is turned on the GS bullets and then the "bumps" go to the full diameter of the caliber. The first "bump" is so far back that the chamber would have to be really short to get the first "bump" close to the lands and still have enough "bumps" inside the neck to hold the bullet.

Groove Bullets are turned to the full diameter of the caliber and the "grooves" are turned into that diameter. By doing this one can get close to the lands and still have plenty of "grip" by the neck to hold the bullet.

This is what I meant by 2 totally different design concepts.

Sorry for not explaining these differences in more detail before.

Have a good one,

Re: Idaho Mule Deer and Elk

PP, are you loading the 173 grain HV bullets in a 300 RUM? If so I would be very interested in comparing notes. I have done some load development in my RUM, and I have been shooting the 130's in my 7 STW for a couple of years now with great results.

I have been using the 150 HV in the 30 Ultra...how is the 173 doing....I was worried that it would not stabilize but it sounds like it is doing fine in your gun.

I have a 7 Ultra that I want to develop mono bullet loads for but I thinking I will probably try some of the Groove bullets.......but I do like the BC's of the GS bullets and they have shot very well in my guns.

How has the 130 worked out in your STW...

Paul

Have you tried any of the Groove bullets?

regards

Paul
