Re: Jlk bullets for hunting

Boyd Heaton used them to kill some deer at long range. He was banned for a while from the forum for being muleheaded and ornery but mostly he is a nice guy who knows a lot of stuff so I posted his video for him. IIRC they were 30 cal 210's from a custom 300 RUM.

Len has since unbanned him, but Boyd spends all his money nowadays wrecking jeeps.

The links are all broken. If you know Boyd you can call him to see where they are now.

Re: Jlk bullets for hunting

I live about 25 miles from Swampy who makes the JLK bullets. He is a one man show who has several irons in the fire, so it wouldn't make sense for him to do a huge run of bullets that he doesn't have orders for. He uses J4 jackets just like Berger so one would assume similar performance. I have some 168 gr 7 mm's on hand that I haven't had the chance to try out on game yet. I know Swampy would be glad to have any input from those who have used his bullets on game. Here is his website: www.swampworks.com .

Re: Jlk bullets for hunting

In my testing (though limited) they perform the same on game as the bergers do .they are slightly longer than the bergers and my drops seem to confirm a slightly higher bc than the bergers and accuracy wise they shoot identical groups. I like them a lot but they do take longer to get typically than the bergers. In my experiences do t shoot game with the bergers or the Jlk bullets inside 400 yards. I believe Berger will tell you 300 but I had unsatisfactory performance at 303 and 344 yards with them. Over 400 yards both are good to go. Just my .02

Re: Jlk bullets for hunting

It is not uncommon to carry two different loads. Some guys on here have a load using Accu-bonds or a partition for short range shots (0-400) and have Bergers and A-maxes for shooting long range. Just a thought.
