JLK bullets

I did a search but came up with bugger all


It seems that these are similar to bergers, has anyone used them on game?

    The JLK VLD bullets are made with the same materials and are basically the same design as the Bergers. They should work very well on game for the same reasons the Bergers do.

    I haven't, but just got some 7mm 180's. They have a smoother transition from ogive to bearing surface than the Berger 180's I have.

    On the Bergers you can feel the edge of the transition, where on the JLK's it is completely smooth.

    However, to the eye, they are VERY similar. Virtually identical in length and all other dimensions.

    Those 210's with the .665BC would likely do some good LR work. The 7mm 180 with a .735 as well. Have folks found these to be accurate BC numbers?

    We use alot of the 6.5 130gr bullets from JLK. We have found their BC to be almost spot on. They are just a little different shaped than Bergers design, which I am sure why they have a little higher BC. I have some 7mm 180's on order to try in the 7mm WSM. If the BC is really that high, it should be even more of a hammer.

    The Bergers and the JLK's shoot to the same point of aim in my WSM 7mm. Both are great bullets as far as I am concerned, but all I shoot is paper and coyotes, and they work great for both!
