Re: Cutting Edge 375 Bullets

Was it the 13/6.5 or the 9/6 you used to shoot the 400grain at a mile and do you think you need the tighter twist??

Re: Cutting Edge 375 Bullets

The 13/6.5 was the barrel used. The nose on these bullets are very conservative and there are going to be more tested with more radical noses on them and the tighter twists may be needed for them. I think the 6.5 is going to be fine for these I have tested thus far. I still want to take them out to 2500 or so before I am willing to say for sure. I just got off the phone with Rock and they are cutting 375 barrels this week. I ordered a 6.203 twist as a midpoint between the 9/6 and the 13/6.5 that I already have. I have not chambered the 9/6 yet so I dont know how it will do. The 8 twist seemed to be a little slow, who knows even a 7 might be OK. You boys need to go dig up a fruit jar and help me fine tune this thing.

Oh, I would check with Dan at Cutting Edge to see if he is willing to put these out yet before buying a barrel.

I hope Dan dose put them out you carnt tease us with the best and brightest and not put them out. The BC on the ones your using at the moment seem to be about .960 the more radical nose will really give the 375 CT wings The beter barrel life of the 375 CT over the 338 CT and these new bullets might have a few jumping ship from the 338 CT???

I have been using the Horus ATRAG, it came up with a 1.05 BC to match the drop with the conditions given at 1 mi.

Sounds like close to GS 414 and it will be very interesting to see what test shoe on progressives. Have you tried he Predators from Australia?

Re: Cutting Edge 375 Bullets

Has someone done any recent testing on the GS 414, they are claiming a 1.25 BC. I have not read where anybody has done any extensive testing on these. I checked with Gina and it will take 3-4 months to get delivery on these. I may go ahead and order a few to see how they do.
