Re: Aluminum tipped bullets

I shot some very early version 338s but not at game. Testing only.

I'll keep an eye on this thread to see what pops up.

Re: Aluminum tipped bullets

Anyone know anything about Rocky Mountain Bullets? They are supposed to be working on a hunting 325gr .338 that has a bc of 1.017. This sounds great but as we all know what sounds good and what works good are often two different things. With that kind of BC it will rule me out with my 1-10's.

Maybe by the time it actually does get produced I'll be ready for a new barrel.

From their site they have other cal. available. Has anyone used any?
