This pic shows 2 of the 3 I'm aware of, but the one many of us are most interested in, the VLD, is not pictured...

I think that the Hornady 250 grain .338 calibre BTHP Match bullet would give interesting results. B.C. .67..........Especially with its stability past the transonic barrier.

Re: Future H.A.T B.C. Test shoot

Just a short post to keep thing updated. I talked briefly with Cory T. and if his rifle is finished on time he is definitely in for our test. With this excellent news, this is what it looks like so far.

If a bullet has no details as far as weights, then WE HAVE NONE TO TEST and NO SHOOTER FOR THEM.

30 Cal: - standard bearer 200-220 gr Berger, Hornady, Sierra
ZA 175 or 240 gr
HAT 210 gr
Predator 176 gr

338 -standard bearer 300 gr Lapua
ZA 6.0 caliber - 300 gr (6.5 or 7.0 caliber weight undetermined )
HAT - 265 gr
Predator 235 gr
GS Custom 295gr & 232 grain

Hooker weights undetermined (hopefully medium and heavy)
Lehigh weights undetermined (hopefully medium and heavy)

375 - standard bearer 350 grain Sierra
Predator 350 gr
ZA weights undetermined (6.0 or 6.5 caliber in length)

HAT weights undetermined (hopefully medium and heavy)
GS Custom - weights undetermined
Hooker - weights undetermined (hopefully medium and heavy)
Rocky Mountain - weights undetermined (hopefully medium and heavy)
Lehigh - weights undetermined (hopefully medium and heavy)

LUTZ - several different bullets of different weights, including Viking, and they will be loaded using Lutz's published suggested load data. These will be shot only at short range, as we have too few to bullets to both gather data and do testing at long range.

50 Cal - standard bearer...Lapua N or Hornady AMAX
ZA weights undetermined (5.5 and 6.0 calibers - 931 gr)

SHOOTERS
Dave Viers has volunteered to shoot 30 Cal standard bearer (his choice of Berger, Hornady, Sierra 200-220 grain bullets) and 210 gr HAT bullets; also shooting 375 cal. standard bearer (Sierra 350 grain), 350 gr.Predator solids, 370 gr. Montana jacketed alum tipped, ZA 6.0 or 6.5 caliber length.

Steve Damron is going to shoot 30 cal predator solids 176 gr; 338 Predator solid 235 gr

If my 338 L.M. Improved is finished in time, I will be shooting a GS Custom 295 gr solid, GS Custom 232 gr solid, and a ZA 6.5 and potentially 7 caliber Solids.

Eddybo has volunteered to shoot 338 HAT 265 grains

Cory Trapp is most likely (assuming his rifle is completed on time) going to shoot the 30 cal. 5.8 caliber ZA solid, as well as the 338 standard bearer (300 grain Lapua), ZA 338 6.0 Caliber (300 grain), possibly GS Custom 338.

Dave Viers has kindly offered to bring his ATV (700 polaris) to haul gear and humans to top of firing point.

Re: Future H.A.T B.C. Test shoot

Jeff,

Here are some of the bullet weights,

Predator 375cal. 350 grain brass solid

GS Custom 375cal. 355 grain copper solid

Rocky Mountain 375cal. 370 grain Jacketed with alum tip

Hooker Tactical or Cheytac bullets 375cal. 350grain copper/nickel solids "un-banded"

Lehigh 375cal. 333 grain brass solid

HAT 375 cal. bullets are in development, hoping to have them ready for the shoot.

I hope there is another 375 rifle to test with, my gain twist barrel may not handle some of
these bullets.

As i am writing this i am testing several different bullets to see if they are viable for me to test.
350smk, 370 Rockymtn, 350 Predator, 355 GS custom.... 535yd sight in, moved to 1125yds for test. I will post the results later today.

Dave
