Re: JLK Bullets

You know, you could use the Hornady A-max. It has a pretty sturdy jacket, plus the 162grn. SST (both have a BC of .625). It will open up about like an A-max but a little more controled. They will both open better than an accubond. Like I said, you should be able to really push as hard as you want. The other option is the 175 SMK.

    I have shot JLK's off and on for hunting for several years. They work great. Mostly the .243 105's and the .264 140's but they have performed flawlessly. I shoot the 105's out of a 6mmx284 at 3330 and the 140's in a 6.5-06 Ackley at 3080. With Berger changing the design of their bullets every 6 months I have switched to the JLK's exclusively. I have shot a few of the 7mm 180's and they seem to shoot right with the Bergers. The one thing I have noticed with the JLK's is that you have to add about .5 grains of powder over the Bergers to get the same Velocity. JLK's seem to shoot a little flatter at yardage as well

    Yeah I guess I can't have it all! But we sure do try don't we..

    I don't know for sure if Kirby has tested the thicker jacket one but I'd be willing to guess that he has.

    Hunt Shack is who loads the 180 Bergers for Best of the West. You should be okay shooting them in a 9.5 Twist.
