I spoke to Richard about this around 5 months ago and from memory he suggested a 200 grn in my 1-10 300 rum barrel. Anything bigger he didn't think would stabilize. I think he is back full time on bullets in a couple of weeks. I'm waiting for another batch of 265 338 models.

jmden.

I don't think any bullet of any kind is available from Richard.:confused:

I'm flat out of WCs and one of my rifles is designed for them. Things seem pretty quiet up north.......

Jackets

Hi all spoke to Richard a week ago, he has finaly got the ability to purchase Sierra jackets and has a verry large order in with them and will be using them for all the projectiles he can so as soon as they arrive he can start making more projectiles. the other manufacture of jackets he was getting was causing a lot off kulls due to problems and then they were to thin for the large magnums we all want to shoot them in. Richard has been trying his hardest to get jackets and has had some batches not turn up at all from other suppliers.

As soon as I hear anything I will let you know abd I suppose Kirby will know as soon as they are made as I'm sure he has some on order.

Cheers Bill

Bill,

Was just interested to see if you have shot the 265 rbbt through your own gun yet ? We have done some early testing with my rifle and have yet to find the secret 11 herbs and spices to get them where they need to be. Any clues ? Just interested to see what you have had success with ?

I think they have been loaded with H 1000. The batch I have are a prototype and I know Richard has a new batch due shortly with some small modifications.

Cheers

I feel a lot better after Wild Cat's post. If Richard is having those kinds of problems I'll hang in there with him till the last cow comes home.

Its a real PITA bring a product to market that is a few orbits beyond what anyone else is doing. I understand that and can appreciate his situation.

If a thicker jacket in the heavier 277 cal bullet become available and they work, that will put me back where I want to be.
