Re: More 300 RUM/260 SXR Results

Can you tell us a bit more about the construction process? are you making the bullets from the 'ground up'? or altering an existing bullet? (similar to the way royinidaho modified a 150g .277 Nosler BT by replacing the plastic tip with an aluminum tip making it a 160g projectile with a great BC)

While there would be a great deal of interest, few people have 1:8 twist 300's. I'm quite interested by my RUM is 1:10.

Also, the thread title is "More"...do you have another thread with more data?

    These bullets are built from the ground up a component at a time. They are designed "specifically" for long range hunting. I have been building lighter bullets for my own use for about 6 years now and have killed several animals in excess of 1000 yards. Jon was interested in the 260's so I've been working with him to perfect them. They can be "tweaked" to control expansion at different ranges if necessary. I started this because, like many of you, I have discovered that there are "Long range bullets" and "Hunting bullets", but no real reliable "Long range hunting bullets"!......Rich

    I intend to order one of Kirby's raptors in 300raptor in about 90days so I'm hoping by this time next year I can be running. These 260s at about 3100. But I don't want to order it with an 8 twist unless I'm sure I can either a. Stockpile them now. Or b. Know that they will be available a year from now.

    Well, I told Jon in the beginning to "build one and they will come" so he challenged me to put up! So far it's working out pretty well I can make these in just about any weight from 100-260 grains.......Rich
