The company I work for just imported a crap load of GS bullets from south africa, and I was wondering if there were some people who've tried them here.
I grabbed some 6.5mm 110gr sp monometalic vld's and plan to shoot them in my 6.5mmx284.
They are supposed to be pretty **** hot but we'll see if the proof is in the pudding as they say.
I used the 150grn .308 in a 30-06 last year. I shot 3 antelope, and three mule deer. Ranges from 150yrds to 450yrds. They did everything that they were advertised to do. Very fast killing with very little meat damage. Hit one mule deer in the spine, and only lost 5" of backstrap. They shoot 100 to 200 fps faster than conventional bullets of similar weight.
You should check out their web sight to get load data before you start. They have done extensive research on their product. I recommend following their methods of load development.
I think they are very good bullets and would continue to use them if they were easier to get.
P.S. You probably should follow their recommendations for twist rate for the bullet you are using.
I just realized that the bullets that you are talking about are not the hunting bullets. They are their match bullets. They look pretty slick, but they don't have a hollow point. They will not expand at all.
I just e-mailed gerard to get some bc's and other info.
I can't wait to test them out, but my range here in town only goes to 400yds, but a club a couple hours away is going to push their range to 1000 soon. which will save me a 600km drive to the next closer 1000yd range.
