Re: Check these out!!!

Auburn Tiger,

Here are the .257" Wildcat Bullets I have in stock for the Allen Magnums. There are other weights as well.



From left to right, 100 gr Ballistic Tip for comparison, 100 gr Bonded Core FBHP, 130 gr Bonded Core FBHP, 130 gr Heavy Jacket Bonded Core FBHP, 142 gr ULD Rebated Boattail(b.c. .790), 145 gr FBSP and finally the 156 gr ULD Rebated Boattail (b.c. .820).

I do not have any pics right now of the 284 based wildcats in file loaded with these bullets.

Good Shooting,

Kirby Allen(50)

Re: Check these out!!!

Alremkin,

The 225 gr BT is pictured really for comparision reasons. I use them for fireforming because I had a couple boxes on trade and they actually shoot pretty damn well. The fireforming load rips them out at 3480 fps and gets sub 3" groups at 500 yards so they are at least usible in the field. This bullet launched at near 3500 fps is really a very heavy varmint bullet, pops very hard on impact.

I would imagine out of a 338-378 Wby you would get 2800 to 2850 with the 300 gr ULD which is plenty for extreme range shooting. Remember extreme velocity means very little in this sport.

Good Shooting!!

GoodGrouper,

For the 338 Wildcat Bullets, the 300 gr Hunting ULD runs right around .810 to .820 depending on normal factory. The match 300 gr will be slightly higher because of its longer nose profile.

I do not know yet what the 350 gr B.C. will be, if I had to estimate I would say in the high .8 to low .9 range. I hope to get 2750 fps with them in the Kahn, 2800 if I am lucky, we will have to see.

Good Shooting!!

Re: Check these out!!!

Kirby,
Quick question:
Does Richard have any other bullets in 6.5 besides the 142 ULD?

XP,

He is working on some 169.5 gr ULDs as we speak. I think he still is waiting on dies. I think he said this bullet would run in the mid .900 B.C.

We were also thinking of a 180 gr ULD but we have not decided if we want to try this or not in the 6.5mm Allen Mag. B.C. would be similiar to the 210 gr 7mms at 1.040 or so B.C.

Would need at least a 1-7 I suspect, possible more even at the velocity of the Allen Mag.

Good Shooting,

Re: Check these out!!!

The 7mm 210's seem very interesting with a b.c of 1.040. Has he built any of these yet. I saw on another board laupa is coming out with a short 338 laupa. It would be perfect for necking down to 7mm and putting a 35 degree shoulder on. Would launch the 210's just fine. Richard is changing the name of long range. Fifty thanks for all the good info

Kirby,
So a 17 inch 1-7 twist Specialty Handgun in all likelyhood would not stabilize the big 6.5 bullet in a 6.5-284 case. Right?
