New bullet maker that looks interesting

I don't know if they've found this forum yet, but saw them on another one. Although it looks like only 30 cal bullets right now, they look promising.

Looks very promising. Hopefully they'll venture into the 338's and 375's

I can't find the OAL's anywhere, but I am guessing these things must be crazy long...

Here's an extract from the FB site ...

The BCs on these are ridiculously high! If they are correct those will be some serious bullets for sure! Their 155gr rebated boat tail slug has a higher BC than any other 155gr bullet including Sierra's, Hornady's, and Berger's and is about the same as a Berger 190gr .30cal VLD! Their 230gr Rebated boat tail has a higher BC than the Berger and Sierra 300gr .338 bullets! Their Flat base projectiles are also higher than the competitor's boat tailed bullets of the same weight. Don't see how they're doing that but who knows until they are tested to see if their published BCs are correct.

I wonder about new bullet manificures advertised ballistic coefficents being accurate large numbers sell. It will be interesting if Berger gets some competition. I question the use of the aluminum tip over expanding on game and not penetrating? just some thoughts.

I agree, Berger, Hornady, Sierra, Nosler, etc. have been in this game for awhile and none have come up with a flat based 200gr bullet with a BC of .680! That is higher than any 200-210 bullet out there, including the super efficient 208gr A-MAX and 210gr Berger VLD and Sierra 210gr SMK, and they all have boat tails!
