Re: Cutting edge bullets barrel rifling damage???

My My, I don't know where to start. If your smith don't know any more about building rifles than he does about solids, you had best find someone else. I have seen a lot of unwashed BS concerning solids, I do believe this has to be one of the the most egregious examples I have seen lately. This ranks right up there with some of GS Customs advertised BCs.

Re: Cutting edge bullets barrel rifling damage???

Outlaw, How far are you off the lands with your special cut throat? These bullets like a jump into the lands from what I have seen. I am getting some very good groups out of my wby freebore rifles they like so much jump. The seal tight band is where I get my contact at the end of the chamber. That is where I measure the .02-.03. I do not know how far I am off the lands.

What is the freebore they recommend with that bullet?

Well well, guess I'll have to throw away my Hart barreled 270 that's ONLY had BARNES bullets through it's tube since 2003 despite that it is still a tack-driver.

Perhaps the gunsmith in question is referring to the banded solids for dangerous game? Regardless, his blanket statement couldn't be more wrong. If it was true, Barnes would be out of business.

Hi derek. Yes he may be. He did say something about dangerous game shooters practice with non copper solid bullets and only shoot copper solids at an animal cuz they ruin the barrel. May been what he was referring to. And longtimelongranger I'm shooting the D62's in my Remington 700 Sendero action .338 Win mag. 26" barrel 1-10" twist. 3.656" max overall length touching lands. The starting load data is much appreciated.

Re: Cutting edge bullets barrel rifling damage???

I just set up an accuracy load in my Tikka last week. 76 grains RE-19 with the 225 D-62 at 3.704" oal. I use a cci 250 primer. That is .025" off the seal tight band contact. I have no idea how far off the lands that is. Out of the 24" tikka barrel it averages 2992 fps and will shoot under 10" at 1000 yards. That really lights up the 338 winny getting a .64 bc around 3000 fps. CE bullets do not like to be seated on the lands. They like a jump from what I have seen. Same with the Barnes bullets. They are extremely accurate with a little jump.
