Re: (HAT) Henson Aluminum Tipped Bullet 338 Rum Test

Eddybo,

If you have any of the HATs left, would you mind measuring their OAL, nose and tail? And if you have any 300 SMK's, could you do the same for them. A 265 gr bullet that has a BC of .9 would have to have a MUCH longer OAL and nose than a 300 gr with a BC of .76 and would also require a greater twist.

I have nothing against HAT bullets. Being a LR shooter, I hope they are all they are advertised to be. But after following this drama on this site for quite a while I have lost all confidence in Lightvarmint's and Mr Henson's claims. I'm looking for as many facts and real data as I can get to come to a more informed inteligent conclusion.

Thanks,

Mark

    I think that I found a better bullet!

    I shot my rifle the other day and the bullet actually hit ABOVE my point of aim @ 100 yards!
    As fantastic as that BC seemed, the accuracy was even more amazing!
    When I went to the target the group measured the exact diameter as the bullet!

    With a group like that I really hesitated to take a SECOND shot and blow the group

    Now I know why LV doesn't bother to get exited about 0.100 groups!

    edge.

    Mark, I don't have them in front of me, but is I remember correctly the 265 HAT's are 1.77" and the 300 SMK's are 1.7".

    I think LV and RG Henson are the same guy. It's hard to image to people this abrasive knowing one another and being able to get along.

    Maybe I am, but after reading this stuff for well over a year now it sure seems to be curious not to be confused with bi-curious!

    There is also one other alias, remember Charlston. I think that may be the same guy as well.
