Blowing Up

SM,
The only bullet I have put down my tube is the 115DTAC in my 6-284 XP.
I am just curious if the 117's will stabilize or not?

Called and talked to Dave himself. He is getting a new batch made up. They will be available in 4 to 6 weeks. He said they will have a slightly thicker wall and will be either slighty heavier or possibly lighter. Just different than the existing 117.

If shooting only for hunting situations, woudl be fine with current batch. But, if punching paper, could have some blow up from heat.

any estimates for a velocity limit on these things

I had planned on building a 6-300wsm barrel specifically for these things when they came out. Kinda wanted to combine awesome bc, and varmint velocity. How fast do you think i can drive these things before they dissolve.
