Anyone ever hear of the 30 FBI ?

Any stats on it besides being like a 338 execpt in 30 cal?

What is it? Who makes them? Also how does it compare to other rounds already out there?

Re: Anyone ever hear of the 30 FBI ?

The 300 FBI shot the smallest group I ever saw shot past 2,000 yards. About 6 inches for 5 shots at 2,400 yards. 253 PRL bullet, AW rifle, HB on the trigger.

Think of it as a short .300 win mag. with a little less powder capacity. Still have the belt to deal with though. I would prefer the .300 WSM these days.

Thanks I finally found a little about it.
30-338 Win just another wildcat with a different name.

Didn't know about the group size. Don't need no belt [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] . Whats the HB on the trigger?

That would be Harold, probably the finest Ultra Long range triggerman in the world.

Re: Anyone ever hear of the 30 FBI ?

Is there any more information someone can give me on these bullets. Like B.C., legnth for the 253 grainer, etc? I asked Warren about polygonal rifling with J40's and he said they didn't like it very much because they are harder than other bullets. I was dissapointed to say the least so I'm forced to find a replacment. Thanks

Nighthawk I don't remember about the 253gr 30 cal PRL but, the 268gr one has a theoretical BC of 0.91. The 268gr is the sam length as a 220gr SMK and a 210gr Berger VLD.

If you need more info contact S1 he can give you the details he gave me about PRL lineup.

Texas, I e-mailed S1 yesterday, but have not gotten a response. I guess if I want to try to find a little more info I can try to find the topic .30 Wolf.

But I think I have already found the bullet I want to use though. GS Custom bullets said they would build me a 240 grain bullet with a B.C. similar to that of Warren's 220 J40. I still have some unanswered questions though, but not about the bullet. Specifically the barrel. Warren said his bullets don't like polygonal rifling so I can't use them. I respect Warren a great deal, but if I can't use or afford them then whats the point. I requested that GSC make the most streamlined bullet they could make. I requested a bullet weight between 200 and 250 grains. They said a 250 grain would be over 2" long and require a twist about 1:5. If I get a 240 I would expect the B.C. to be high up there. Sorry for making this post so long.
