Re: GS Custom bullets
I was planing on getting the 173 grn hv's. Will be shooting them out of a 30-338 lapua imp, with a 30" 1-10 twist lija barrel, #6 taper fluted. Estimating from GS's data I should be getting 3700fps +. GS sent me a note today saying that the twist I have would be too slow, and that the 173's would tumble on impact. They said I should shoot the 160's. I am old school and this seems sooo light. I am coming down from 220grn Hawk bullets to the 173's. Now to go down to the 160's I am having a hard time swallowing. Will I have problems w/ so much powder capacity behind this light of a bullet?
Any sugestions would be great.
To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
