It is different then all the bullets you list. The Accubond and Sciroccos have a very thick jacket, especially at the base of the bullet.
The Scirocco has an extremely heavy jacket. IF your bore is dimensioned correctly for this bullet they shoot very well, if it is a bit to tight or to loose, you can have accuracy problems.
The Accubond is similiar except the jacket is not quite as heavy and is made from guilding metal instead of soft copper. This offers less bore fouling. Still with an oversized bore, you can still have accuracy problems with the Accubond.
THe Wildcat BCFBHPs are built on a relatively conventional cup jacket such is seen on bullets like those from Sierra, Hornady and such. Only difference is that you have the option for much heavier jackets then these if you want. Generally a 0.030" thick jacket is all we would ever need in North America even with the big magnum rounds.
The advantage of this is that these bullets will bump up or swage down easier to match your bore then the other bullets you list. This generally translated to much more consistant accuracy from one rifle to another.
In a tight bore they shoot EXTREMELY tight groups. In a looser bore they tend to need to be driven to pretty high pressures but at top loads they shoot extremely well also.
This is the best feature of these bullets besides their bonded core on game performance, they are generally very consistant and accurate over a wide range of bore diameters.

No problem Fifty, I was just wondering how Richards bullets would compare in BC to other bullet manufacturers with similar bullet weights. I love the idea of the 169.5grn bullets, but would like more horsepower to toss them with. Maybe you'll have to build me an AM in the near future.
I was curious as to what the estimated bc of the .257" 125g?? I just shot a 3.5" 4 shot group at 525 yards with my 25-06 and the 110g Accubond. I am just trying to find the most accurate load is all. Also was wondering if the 125g would stabilize in my barrel?
25-06, What twist do you have? Kirby built me a 25-284 with a 1:10" twist and it shoots them into a half inch group at 200 yards. I am going to shoot at 400 here real soon. Unfortunately I will be archery elkhunting for the next two weeks so I won't have anything to report.
