Hi until the problems are fixed 3000fps is all they will handle. lets hope they fix them at .600bc at 3150 they will blow 6.5-284's out off the water.

Cheers Bill

wild bill,

I shoot the 115 DTACS right now at 3178 fps @ 4800 asl. Deadly accurate and the BC is .585

You should try them out...

No blowups to date with the 115 dtacs even pushing them real hard.
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.

117gr DTAC's

Hi if you read the lable on the post it is about 117gr DTAC's not 115gr DTAC's. The 115's will hold togethor but the 117's will not thats what we are talking about.

Cheers Bill
