Cauterucio Bullets

Does anyone have any data on either the 156's or 176's with 7mm STW. (or any other 7mm for that matter)

    Re: Cauterucio Bullets

    Last month I double-lunged a 10 point buck at 525 yards with the 176 grain bullet. Cartridge was 7 Dakota in a 30 inch barrel.

    74 grains of RL25 for a velocity of 3130 FPS. The BC does seem as high as I had hoped, about .750 according to my in-flight tests.

    The jackets on these are made by Sierra and are about 50% thicker than on a matchking, I would guess. As a comparison the jacket on the A-max is significantly thinner than the matchking.

    Last year I shot 4 deer (one shot kills) at ranges from 525 to 690 and got no pass-through with A-max or Matchking bullets. I decided to look for a high bc bullet with a sturdier jacket construction to gain pass-through for tracking purposes.

    Bob's bullet fits the bill perfectly. The exit wound was just over 1 inch in diameter. Accuracy was about the same as the MK, which is sort of an accuracy standard other bullets are judged by.

    I removed the lube which I assume was only there for manufacturing purposes.

    30 inch barrel.

    Re: Cauterucio Bullets

    The reason I asked about the lube is that bob said he leaves it on. Do you moly coat?

    Do you have any Data on the 156's?

    I have a 26" barrel with a 1:9 twist. I'm curious as to whether the 156 or the 176 would perform better in my rifle and what velocities I can acheive.

    No moly.

    I bought some 156s but have not shot them.

    My twist is 7 but I think Bob would recommend 8 or 9.
