Re: Cutting Edge Bullets terminal performance
Here's some info that I posted in Sept of last year...
I did not play with the seating depth, as I didn't have to. We physically measured the group size at 1,789 yards but I don't like to post group sizes on rocks... I'll be happy to discuss the results with you if you want to shoot me a PM with your contact number.
As promised... here are the results we logged when comparing the 300 gr solid with the 300 SMK..
Both bullets were shot at a velocity of 3200 fps give or take a few ft + or - variation.
The 300 SMK was shot out of a 33" barrel, and the 300 gr solid was shot out of a 30" barrel. Both loads are single digit ES.
We did not shoot for group, just engaged rocks approx 12" in diameter. Two shots per rock at each range.
650 yds 9.5 moa
785 yds 12.5 moa
1,293 yds 27.75 moa
1,460 yds 34.75 moa
1,789 yda 49.25 moa
300 gr solid
650 yds 8 moa
785 yds 11.5 moa
1,293 yds 25.5 moa
1,460 yds 31.25 moa
1,789 yds 44.25 moa
As you can see, the solid was 5.0 moa flatter at 1,789 yards. That equates to 90" or 7.5 ft.
They were extremely consistent from shot to shot at each target.
Not an all encompassing test by any means, but certainly some hard data to ponder....
