The bullets are expensive, but at $2.00 each it isn't out of line at all if they shoot well, have a sufficient BC for 1200 and are only shot at elk and moose.
The 150 Nosler Ballistic Tips shoot better at distance compared to the 140 NABs each with the same bc which is much lower than any decently designed 170 class 277 bullet.
The wildcat 169.5s are right at 0.74 out of my barrel at 3300 and at 4480' elevation.
If a flat base bullet of similar design is even a 0.6 bc and velocity is not limited by the bearing surface, it should be a go. Wouldn't ya think?
The 150 Bergers are very unstable above 3200 out of my rifle thus they aren't among those selected.....
Maybe if Kirby gets that new fangled throat design finalized then I may be able to go back to the 195 wildcat which I have some of......
