Amen Brother AGAIN!!!

If your windier then the east slope of the rocky mountains, maybe I don't want to come down and hunt in your fine country!! LOL

Have you found the cutting edge bullets tricky or finicky to load for?

Kirby,
Don't worry, your/our big guns will cut through!
We've found the LD-HPBT-Max bullets extremely easy to load for, and very accurate at long range. The more aggressive Max-Agg's have been slightly more finickety.
The 338 252gn LD-Max D64 bullet really performs in the medium capacity 338's like our 338 Thor (338/416 imp), where the lighter weight and ease of driving allows us to push them at over 3400fps. They give up nothing much in windage to the 300gn'ers at this velocity to around 1000 yards anyway. We've pushed them at 3550fps out of the 338 Lunatic's.
Dan tells me he's going to look at producing tipped versions of these in the future, now they've perfected this technology for their Raptor bullets. That will ensure they have great terminal performance as well.

Thanks, I have been thinking about trying some of their 375 bullets in my 375 Allen Magnum since Jamison International went belly up and they were the distributers for the 350 gr SMK.

Kirby,
Definitely worth a try as their BC's aren't exaggerated. We haven't built a 375 version yet, as have been waiting to see if the bullets/twist rates etc all work out. The 338's are going so well there's also little incentive for us, as the 375's will have to be heavier to be as shootable. But with their 400gn with a suggested BC of .98 or better at AM/Lunatic velocities, this could certainly be the new long range hammer!
