JLK Bullets

I know I'm late to the game but I've just done some reading on the JLK bullets. Who is using them? How do you like them? Can you hunt with them? I'm having a 7mm AM built and was wondering if any has tried them in a 7 Allen mag? Do the jackets hold up to high velocity?

Thanks

Re: JLK Bullets

Everything that I have been reading to date has put the JLK to the equivalent of the Berger. This said, that means a more solidly constructed bullet for close range (0-400yrds Accu-bond, Bear Claw, Core Lokt, Barnes, GMX, SST, E-Tip). Then use the JLK to distances beyond 400 for better terminal damage at long range. That's if you can pull off shooting two different loads with the same POA.

Re: JLK Bullets

The JLK's are basically twins of the Bergers in form and construction. They both use the same J4 jacket. There are a couple of JLK's with longer boattails that may have a slightly higher BC.

Re: JLK Bullets

Thanks sniperjwt. That was a good read.

it looks like for me they won't work in the 7 Allen mag. Kirby said he's tried the Bergers through the big 7 and because of their thin jackets they have problems. Kinda sucks I wanted to try the Bergers too. I was hoping the JLK's had a little heavier jacket.

your welcome Boman.

So i guess that is one draw back to having the AM huh. Well with all the positives you get with it there has to be a negative somewhere.

Re: JLK Bullets

Berger does make the 7mm's with 2 different jackets, I believe!
