117 gr. 6mm DTAC Bullet?

Guys i have 500 of these and i'm getting ready to load them up for WY antelope out of an 18" Broughton-barrelled Savage Striker 243 WSSM. Anybody know the BC of the bullet? ...and what happened to it? Heard some rumors that it was coming apart out the barrel of some fast-steppers, and they were supposed to come out with a heavier jacketed 111 gr.? Anybody know the story?

The BC of the 117 is reported as .600

The 117 has been a problem for people using way too much energy behind them, in 7 to 7.5 twists.

You won't have a problem from an 18" barrel with twists 7 to 8

The story...well I got tired of the "they'll ship next week" week after week and ended up getting a box of the 115's.

I have my doubts about seeing the 111's...I could be off base though.
