7MM 200 GR+ WITH A BC OF .9

Oh and they need to hold up to 3400-3500 FPS

And 1 more thing they have to have good ON GAME PERFORMANCE.

That's all I want...Where you want your money sent to?

Re: custom bullets

What ideas do you have for building something better than the SMK, Rocky Mountain and Hornaday. I guess high B.C. is very very important but accurate, consistant and an improvement over what's available is the dream right. What would make yours different? I am not being a doubter just curious.....

Re: custom bullets

lazy labs. when you make your own bullets or custom bullets in general you can have much more consistant bullets. You can cull any bullets that dont feeling right or act right as they go through the process
