I am building 2 rifles for out to about 2000 yards and I am planning on shooting the Widcat bullets. I ordered 1000 each of the 325 grain .338 bullets and 265 grain 30 cal bullets these heavy wieghts should hit very hard when they reach the target with great terminal effect

Re: 30 caliber \"wildcat\" bullets??

Because of some hissy fits some people threw on here a couple of years ago Richard wont post BC's anymore, they were only computer guesses in the first place. The bc of the 30cal bullets would be really close to what you see in the VLD berger bullets. The big difference is that the wildcat bullets are built for hunting so they preform more reliably on game than some of the VLD bullets have shown.

The big thing that wildcat bullets offers is large for caliber bullets available for several calibers that nothing else is offered in, .277,.257,.284. The BC of a 195gr .277 bullet is nothing sheer of amazing, same goes for a 200gr .284 bullet.

If you got any questions on them just talk with Richard himeslf, his email is on here somewhere.

good luck
steve

Re: 30 caliber \"wildcat\" bullets??

I do not have any hard numbers for Richards 30 cal bullets yet but this spring I will be testing the hell out of my 300 Allen Xpress and 300 Allen Magnum and will offer all ballistic data I come up with here on LRH.

As far as estimates on BC, for given bullet weights you will see similiar BCs to those with the Berger VLD bullets. In some cases slighly less, some cases slightly more.

The real advantage of WIldcat Bullets is the range of bullet weights. I know Richard makes 30 cal bullets from a 68 gr HP flat base up to a 290 gr ULD RBBT. Thats 222 grains of bullet weight options to pick from, no one else offers anything close to that.

You can contact Richard at wildcatbullets@hotmail.com

He is a hell of a guy and a great bullet maker!! He can be a bit hard to get ahold of sometimes though so be patient, he will get back to you.

As to the question on if I would shoot Wildcats or Berger bullets. Every one of my Allen Magnum or Allen Xpress rounds were designed around specific Wildcat Bullets and that is all I use in them for the most part. That is not to say some specific rifles will not prefer other brands of bullets because that happens with all rifles but I can tell you every one of my personal Allen Magnum rifles that have taken big game have used ONLY wildcat bullets and will continue to do so simply because they offer ballistic performance above anything else out there in many caliber choices.
