Re: best Long Range Caliber for big game! please look
I have not shot game with the CE bullets. I prefer the monometal bullets for hunting purposes to drive through any animal at any shot angle and kill it. No fragmenting, no BS, just kills stuff. I don't care if the petals fly off. Supposing they do it is not important. I still have 95%+ of the bullet driving through the animal instead of worthless fragments with many lead core bullets. The CE is a solid copper bullet which is the type bullet I prefer to shoot at all large big game.
I have talked to several guys who have shot cutting edge bullets working up loads and the BC's seem to be accurate and the bullets are very accurate. I will be testing them on all kinds of game around North America this fall if the accuracy is there. I am doing accuracy and BC testing with the 225grain number 62 bullet over the next couple months. From the guys I have talked to the BC's may actually be a little on the low side with some bullets.
Sorry I have no information to give right now but I will report on what I find during testing. Sometimes all the hype is accurate and sometimes not with new bullets. But everyone knows whatever it is I always report it accurately as I shot it in my rifles. I have all kinds of cartridges and all kinds of bullets and no dog in any fight in this industry. So everyone will get it accurately with anything I test.
For guys not familiar with Cutting Edge bullets they are very interesting and radical with their design. They integrate new technology into their design that I have never seen or shot. They are a solid copper bullet that advertises a softer copper. This could help with less pressure build up and better expansion. They offer high BC hunting bullets in most calibers and I hope to try several over the next year if the initial 338 testing goes well. If the .640-.645 BC holds true for the 225 grain bullet it would make quite a long range performer in any 338. Even down to the 338 winchester pushing the 225 at 2950 fps it would easily be a nice 1000 yard elk rifle. Out of a 338-378 wby at over 3400 fps it would be awesome to over 1000 yards. Depending on the caliber they cost $1-$1.25 each.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
