This bullet is exactly what I have been looking for. With a 8.5 twist, what will be the maximum speed it can withstand? I have a custom 7mm RUM. Looks like time to get a 7 Allen mag now!

I'm saddened......

Like Santa Claus on his donkey, the 270 cal is out on its ass in the snow, again...

Guess I'll keep on trucking w/my repointing project.....:(

1.52" long
170 grains
Recommended twist 1:8.5"
Estimated G1 BC: 0.703
Estimated G7 BC: 0.360

Note these are estimates, actual performance is typically within +/- 5% of estimates.

Topshot,
If the extra long bullet doesn't cause a copper fouling problem on long strings of fire typical of match shooting, there's no reason it wouldn't be a good choice for a match bullet. Berger's match and hunting bullets are made to the same precision standards.

As for an upper speed limit, that remains to be seen. Considering it's made on the same thickness jacket as the 180 VLD hunting, it should be able to withstand velocities similar to the 180 VLD's max limit. I'm not even sure what that is; would estimate 3300-3400...?
