Re: Boretech .338 245gr.

I emailed boretech one month ago as I was considering a 338 rum build. They responded and told me that there data shows that the 245 grn bullet works well on thick hided animals out past 500 yrds. That is where the bullet is slowing down enough to expand and cause internal damage. If I decide to get a 338 rum I will deffinatly try these bullets out. Just my humble .02

    I would recommend catching these bullets in water or some other media to determine how they will react on game, before testing on game animals. Also you may want to check the regulations for the state that you intend to hunt. Non-expanding solids are not legal in many states. Bore Tech's hollow point looks like a great bullet, but not offered smaller than .416.

    My .02

    To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.

    I got some of them to use in my 338 Lapua that i am having built and called bore tech a couple times and asked a bunch of questions. The guys that i talked to are great guys and will take there time to expain anything to you. That being said i did ask about useing on big game and he told me the same as what someone else previously posted about not reccomended inside of 500 yards. He did say that they were working on a hunting bullet in .338 since they had such good luck with the hunting bullets they make in the other callibers .416 and .50. If you got any questions just give them a ring and im sure they will help you out as they did me.
