Rocky Mountain has these. I doubt Whiskey's are going to be much different.

One more thing about these RBTs. When they are heavy the have a lot of bearing surface. They will shoot slower as they'll require more pressure to push them out of the barrel. That's not to say they are bad. I like and use some aluminum tipped RBTs and they are accurate, and consistent. They also do a great job on game.

It would be awesome for a 175gr 30cal bullet with a BC that high BUT I will have to shot it to believe it.If they can do it I might have to get a second job to buy ALOT of them.

Expect less than 0.583 from their 175gr. I get 0.583 G1 from a 190gr of similar shape and construction.

Re: New bullet maker that looks interesting

I just ordered 200 of their 30 cal 230 gr TAC-PM RBT in the "Match Grade" version
https://whiskey3precisionsystems.com...&product_id=61
Gonna see how they compare to the Berger 230's
Planning on burning up 50 bullets in 300 Rum w/RL33 and 50 in my 7.62 PRO

Saving the other 100 bullets for my 300 Werewolf (almost done)

if the bc of .8469 is real, gonna be awesome at 3500 fps

If the 175 had the same form factor as the 190s you're shooting it would put their BC at .537 G1. Not bad for a 175 grain pill. If they could be made with the same form factor as the 215 hybrid (if even possible) they would still fall noticeably short of the .6 mark. About .566 G1. Velocity aside, it's all in the section density and form factor. Even though different barrel characteristics will alter the form factor causing small variances between rifles, the percentage of differences is very minor. It's just not possible to make a 175 grain 30 cal bullet much more than .550 G1 if at all. If you need or want higher BCs, you have to go heavier or with a larger caliber along with heavy for caliber bullets.
