Groove Bullet

A while back the groove bullet company gave a bunch of bullets to guys to test at LR. Any of you guys got results? Who has taken game with them and how well did they work?

Re: Groove Bullet

I believe CrowMag, Darryl and Boyd got some. Last I read, Boyd was waiting on the weather in order to test. All I know...

Re: Groove Bullet

Oh, Okay, thanks.

I hope the results are good, it'd be nice to have a good accurate tough bullet to try, some places I hunt the folks get a little peaved about my using "match" bullets (critters don't seem to care one way or the other).

Re: Groove Bullet

I have not taken any game with the Groove Bullets but shot some at 1000 yards with good results. I am going to shoot some in my HG at the first match in Iowa to see how they will shoot in competition.

Re: Groove Bullet

Crow mag

I don't see a listing for the 6.5mm Groove Bullet at the groove website, is there a better listing of available Groove bullets somewhere else??

I do see a listing for a 375 bullet and that has me interested, long range 375 gun (I've got a sickness [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img], need more guns illness).

Any word on how these bullets perform with differing type rifling and/or barrel manufacturers. I have some polygonal rifled barrels and of course some conventional rifling and in the past have had trouble with monometal bullets in polygonal.

Re: Groove Bullet

Dave.

The 6.5's aren't in production yet but we have been proding Don. He is trying to get an inventory of what he offers already and then he is gonna do the 6.5's. They were suppose to be out by now but am not sure when they will.
