I hope I did not offend as I feel most of your information offered was right on.
I would liek to make a point here for everyone to read with no one in particular that this is directed to.
As you can see there are a vast number of Wildcat Bullets offered. There is not a person on this board that has tested or shot or purchased all of these different designs and can give a fully qualified expert opinion on such things as "open point", "Hollow Point", "Mag Tip" or "ULD".
There is one person that can answer these questions and that is the bullet maker himself. Now Richard is a very generous guy and will talk bullets with anyone that wants information. This is one of the perks dealing with such a man.
If you have legit questions about his bullets please, by all means drop him an e-mail or give him a call and find out directly from the man himself.
If your serious about learning about the Wildcat Bullets get ahold of him.
I can tell you that with the bullets I have been testing, mainly in 257, 6.5, 270 and 338, The ULD nose profile is in the 15 caliber range.
We have talked about going up to as steep as 20 but there are deminishing returns at these levels so 14 to 15 is basically what a ULD is defined by.
Most VLDs I would say are in the 12 range.
It is true VLD and ULD can mean several different things to several different people.
Why are a bunch of guys debating issues that we do not know for 100% and getting fired up about different opinion.
If you have a legit question and are intereted in possibly getting some of Wildcat Bullets, get ahold of Richard Graves. His e-mail is posted already but here it is again:
There is no better source then from the maker himself.
My only intention was to offer everyone on this board the inforamtion on bullet pricing so they could see if they wanted to try some of these bullets.
Unfortunately, at times I feel the presentation of a large number of options can often make nit pickers out of us.
If you want to know the specifics on a certain bullet, ask the man himself, I assure you he is one of the easiest guys to deal with in our industry!!!
He is going on a bear hunt this weekend and possibly into next week so wait until the middle of the week to e-mail him as he will not be around to reply!!
