I have spoken with David several times in the past and, yes, he has always been helpful.

Our MV's (sscoyote & myself) are lower since we use specialty handguns. I wonder if they would work great @ a 2700 fps MV?

D tubb is only shooting them @ 2900 or so. I havent had any come apart under 800 yards. I have had some not make the trip to 1400 though. Its weird since the 105 amaxes dust @ 100 yards out of the same gun.

As mentioned before they will go with a heavier jacket, which will lessen weight. He is not sure what weight it will end up at. From what was said, it will be the weight where they get the best accuracy.

Wait and see for now.

you could probably talk me out of 400 or so I have left if you want the thinner jacketed ones.
