The ogive on these transition into the bore rider more smoothly than the EXP 3 and 4, the 1and 2 seemed to like my barrel better although all of them shot very well out to a mile.
These bullets gave accuracy at 100 yds you would have to see to believe. Dont ever let anyone tell you big long boat-tail bullets wont group at 100yds. Granted these were fired from a 6.5 exit twist; however, another individual is reporting similar results from an 8 twist. Another individual is reporting very good results with the 350 gr. from a 10 twist.
The design of these bullets are fairly conservative when compared to the other solids I have tested. The BCs are a little less than some of the prototypes I have fired but the Cutting Edge bullets are much less fussy.
Well there you go boys, these are good bullets. Now yall go gitchesome and lets start an argument about the BCs.
Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Cutting Edge or any other bulletmaker in any shape or form, my only interest is to keep the 375 alive.
I have been testing the "cutting edge" 377grain & 402 grain MTAC's over the last few weeks. I ran out of the 402's and I hope to complete the testing on them in my 8.25 twist 375 this week.
I have shot several of the 377 grain bullets in the same gun and got some awesome 100 yard groups and at 825 yards, my initial 3 shot group was 3.5 inches. I shot a few more and I saw some fliers. I cooled the barrel and shot a few more with some fliers along side another nice group.
This was at a lower charge of 142 grains of 50bmg...I did have another good group at 100 yards with 144 grains of powder, but didn't test them at any distance.
Any ideas or suggestions??
