First Pics

Here's a couple of these customized bullets bracketing a Berger180 gr VLD.

These are the two that came back with the die from Corbin.

They'll all look better when I do the point forming which will happen after they prove out in initial testing.


If the images is too large press Control and roll your mouse wheel one way or the other.......

Roy,

These are 0.277" diameter correct? Like 270 Winchester and 270 WSM.

Nice looking - that's for sure. I bet they perform just fine also.

You're gonna be spoiled with this ability to customize and fine tune your bullets.

Yep, 277,

There is a 98% chance that they will perform as expected.

No one will know until they are tried.

If not, there are several options before the project can be determined a failure.

Sure hope this isn't a Edison light bulb thing......

GG,

Had an opportunity to make some decent bucks. Last big hoorah before the M and the desire to trade hours for $ passes.

I'll be back in ID later in the year. By hunting season I would suppose. If I miss the season I've promised myself a "fenced" hunt as I really want to test those bullets and the fence is around more than 2000 acres which is all hiking and not an easy hunt until it comes time to field dress and haul out. But ya gotta tip the Sherpa.

Re: 270 Allen Mag and WSM Shooters

Nope,

The only reason for my venture is the lack of bullets for the 270 cal. for extreme cartridges.

The other calibers are very well covered by very good bullet makers.

The only other weakness in selection that I'm interested in a heavier than the 350 class bullet in 375.
