Very well done.

I'm in the process of building a big 30 cal to use these projectiles, thanks for taking the time to share the info.

Re: RL-33 First Blood

Thanks everyone for the comments. There are a couple of happy hunters.

Roy, It is amazing what women hunters wear to the field. If they believe their clothing brings good luck no problem by me, as long as the outfit isn't a decoy!

I've included a video of a 1175 yard validation shot before the hunt to test the camera. The target is 1X2 MOA. Nothing special but nice to see the quick time of flight and impact on the center of the rock. In full view you can see the bullet path. This bullet is quick!.

Re: RL-33 First Blood

The time of flight of anything with a decent bc and over 3100 or so MV is addictive.

It seems natural to know exactly when to expect the impact.

Gotta love that velocity!

Re: RL-33 First Blood

Excellent shooting! And just the results I wanted to see from the 230gr targets I also am loading them in my 300 rum but with retumbo. Seeing the results is making me very anxious to try them on elk this year!! Hopefully I will be also posting my results on my elk, deer and if we see enough of them maybe ill tag a few wolves.

Thanks again for posting the results! You'll have to get them in the animals taken with Bergers thread!
