Damn right....I can't afford $2.00 a piece projectiles for practice work to get the load dialed in, then hunt with them. If I could load them up, and they be perfectly dialed in.....Sure I'd probably buy a box b/c they'd last me a couple years. I just can't justify it when my Berger VLD's are shooting ultra-tight cloverleafs and I can get twice as many for half as much.

I am sure the CE bullets are phenomenal! I have heard nothing buy positive and exemplory remarks about them....But as much as I like to shoot, I just don't make that kind of scratch to shoot stuff that expensive. Don't get me wrong....I'd love to be able to shoot them, since I hear so much good stuff, but that's just not in the budget the way I keep buying more guns and building more... LOL

Like he said, send me a box of the heaviest 7mm's you got and I'll develop a load and whack some whitetails with them this year, and report back.

Re: The evolution of the hunting bullet

heck as much shooting and hunting as i do i cant even afford bergers. Sierras, hornadys, speer and noslers for me and about 99 percent of them are just there cup and core bullets. I guess ill worry about it when they start letting me down.

Re: The evolution of the hunting bullet

I started reloading ammo in 1953. Over the years bullets have become game weight specific and also to handle the higher bullet velocities from mag rifles. When I first get a different rifle I find an accurate reload for it and then purchase additional components to last me for some time. My main big game rifles are a 270 Win, 308 Norma Mag, and 340 Weatherby Mag. Before going big game hunting I shoot a three shot 100 yard group to check the sites . Most of the time I have not needed to make any changes to my reloads. Some years ago I shot three rounds at a target with the 308 Norma Mag then fired three more rounds to take a pronghorn, mule deer, and elk. Most all of my shots with the 270, 308 Norma, and 340 W Mag has ben a one shot kill, never seen a reason to change bullet, primer, powder, or case brands from my first reloads. I do try new different bullets, powder, primers, and cases in my varmint rifles. I try to get the varmint rifles to shoot one half inch 100 yard groups. There has ben a vast improvement in varmint bullets and powder since I started reloading so I try them but my 220 Swift still likes the old IMR 4064 powder with the bullets I use.-- My big game rifles shot 1 1/2 inch or less groups and the bullets killed the game so I never tried the newer bullets.

Re: The evolution of the hunting bullet

Didn't Lutz Möller start building quite similar bullets a few years ago?
Btw your advertisment is too humble, pls season it with a few more superlatives.
