    Re: 338 high BC bullets

    [QUOTE=Down Under Hunter;423885]I have tried the Henson AL tips without success. Also waiting on a new RMB I think around 280 gn with .9 + bc. WIlll run in std 1-10 barrels too.

    Also spoke to a friend in the US yesterday that is testing a new sloid pill that is 263 grn and breaks into 4-5 sharp pieces on inpact under testing and could cause huge damage too.


    Were these the Gen I or II HATs.

    And I'm not not familiar with these initials (RMB) is there a website for these bullets.

    how are they on game? I am considering them, I spoke with Dan today, and he recommended the 64 or 65 in 252 to start with. I am shooting a 338 edge with a 34" barrel, I have shot SMK's at 2950. I tried the berger but so far got the nose slump issue I have been talking to Brian and will try a few things he mentioned if just for research purposes. Theres really nothing wrong with the smk's just exploring my options. I am in northeastern pa and just heard about cutting edge so I figured I would look into it more. any recommendations you can give me?

    Howdy,

    They were the GEN 1 models. We had stabilizing problems from the 1-10 twist rate.

    Yes you are correct Rocky Mountain Bullets. Just waiting on them to get here currently.

    Check this link..

    Re: 338 high BC bullets

    Wasn't there a shoot in the Spring somewhere on an Indian reservation where they were going to test bullets at long range?

    IIRC they were going to test the HAT bullets and a bunch of others for true BC, etc.

    Did this shoot ever happen and where the results posted here.....It seems I missed it!

    edge.
