    It would appear that not too many of you all have an opinion on these bullets, or have not used them. They are difficult to get a hold of. I have read everything I can get a hold of, which is mainly their web site. A very good read I thought. On their site they have a link under " useful stuff" to an article called Shooting Holes in Wounding Theories. This article goes into the physics of how a bullet acts on the impact of an animal. I would love to hear a discussion with all of you about this. This guys stuff is very technical, and a long read. Very worth the time.
    PS He is not a GS guy, they just link to his web site. Here is the address if you don't want to do the link thing. www.rathcoombie.net/sci-tech/ballistics/wounding.html#introduction

    IMO, that link is great, it helps that I agree with about 90% of his views [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    The links from there are useful and make for some good reading too.
    The SC study was interesting even though I don't really agree with the results. It is interesting to see any large group of data that involves a lot of animals shot. IMO, I think that it puts into perspective how many shots on game it may take to get useful results regarding a particular type of bullet.

    Re: GS Custom bullets

    If you order from GS have them air shipped!! It took 2 years to get the order I placed due to getting lost in ground shipping.
    I ordered a few 375 bullets for the 375/50BMG but unfortunatly I sold the gun last fall and never did get a chance to see how they shot.
    I also ordered a few .224 bullets for the 8 twist 22-250 but the gun is down for repairs waiting for funds to fix a poor chamber,thread and crown job....never asume the local smith knows what he is doing!!
    In the order where a few 6.5 bullets too but I was in a nasty fall last summer and have yet to do any load work for the 6.5-284 or 6.5Sweede.The plan is to have the 6.5s up and running for antilope,deer hunting this fall.
    His site has a lot of info that will have you reading and thinkin fer a long time and he has ben very helpfull in giveing advise to get his bullets shooting with a minimum of load work.Kinda spendy but I'm convident at this point that they will be at least acceptable,timel tell?The plan is to use wet telephone books for a backstop dureing load testing to se how they expand.
    The pic showes a couple of his bullets against the competition.

    If they were stationed here instead of S. Africa I would used them exclusively. I can not say enough good thing about them.

    The bulets are FLAWLESS!!! +1 on what POP said....if they were readily available here....I would use nothing but GS. I have used them in 300WM, 280, 280AI, and 243. My wife and I are both in their gallery section.
