We are working through some testing but our expectation is that this bullet will have none of the higher velocity performance issues of the Gen 1 bullets but it will have the terminal performance of the Gen 1 bullet.

We are very excited to be able to offer a truly effective and quickly lethal hunting bullet for the 338 cal hunters. It took some bumps and bruises to get this sorted out but I'm confident that we've got this one right.

Regards,
Eric

    Hi Eric.....I know the specs are proprietary but I like the sound of the tapered jacket. I'm quite sure you thickened up the base and kept the nose fairly thin.....Rich

    Shhhhh. Your not wrong. The key is precisely where and how much but you've got a bead on the concept. Now keep this between you and I, ok.

    We are waiting for some more of the test results to come in to confirm what we have already observed. We've made our resellers aware of this bullet and are accepting orders now. If we discover anything wrong before the larger run is produced we will let those who've ordered know (along with everyone else in various ways.)

    Regards,
    Eric
