Re: Annealing bullets

This topic gives me vapors!

Terminal expansion problems are most readily solved by larger cartridge with more powder.

I was thinking just that. It seems a lot less troublesome to 1. take shorter shots or 2. bring a bigger gun. Amax seem to expand pretty violently at "low" speeds.

Re: Annealing bullets

anyone tested this with the 350 gr SMK in 375 cal????? Its main problem is lack of expansion. Been working on installing an aluminum tip on these to aid expansion but annealing the meplat would be a lot easier!!! Does not help BC much though!!

wonder if there is a gameking version in the works. Though I am sure Berger and Hornady are already working up their own version. Maybe a 350 GR Amax.

Re: Annealing bullets

I have heard rumblings that Berger is working on a 375 cal bullet, that would be nice but trying not to even get excited about that one, if they are making one it will be here when it gets here!!!

I'd be happy to see any berger in stock

Yep, me to!!! I was stocked up pretty well when this mess hit the fan as I test most of my customers rifles with berger bullets for accuracy testing but I am starting to run low in the 180 gr 7mm, 230 gr 30 cal and 300 gr 338 cal.

Hopefully they catch up soon. Likely new bullet R&D will not gear up until they catch up with back orders.....
