You never know a few of us might be able to attend one of the demo's, I'd look forward to seeing your product on the range in a demo. I also have some friends in the "community" in San Diego, if perhaps your doing any demo's near there. I'm on the West coast as well'.., so if your close I'd make the effort pop by your AO.

Second: Have you ever work with a guy Josh (holding back last name) in advertising and web building? No trick he's a good guy.

Well I'm going to cut this short, looks like your a busy guy.. One other thing, are you supplying'.., or'..., are any of the Dept's in Oregon, Washington or Idaho using your bullets yet? I still have a lot friends out there ( that are active Swat snipers) whom I could contact if their using your bullet for their take on the product.

A thought'.., I have an old Israeli sniper buddy that I've worked with over the years that's in your area has I type, he's here on business; if you have anything going on, our would like to do a show & tell.. give me a contact number by pm and I give you his, perhaps he could hook up with you... their (IDF) is always looking for the next best thing when it comes to bullets & kit.

Remember when dealing with PR..."Lean into to it" stay focused.. don't upset your buyers.

You continue to demonstrate what you don't know about establishing BC values. And that BCs are an afterthought. They aren't important to you, and they shouldn't be important to us. Georgia or the mountains of Oregon would make no difference if you're entering dimensional information into a program to spit out a BC value for your bullets. If you understood the basis of ballistic coefficients, you'd understand they are established at a Standard atmospheric condition, in order to be comparable and have meaning relative to other bullet BC values. If your BC values aren't valid at a Standard atmoshpere condition, then you ought to provide the station pressure and temperature at which they are valid.

You've communicated your predicament. You're too busy making bullets and money, because of unbelievable demand for your product. You've got more important things to tend to. More power to you.

This is a long range hunting Forum where an accurate BC value means more than it does to 100 yd or 1000 yd benchrest competitors. I don't generally get to fire practice rounds on game animals before I shoot for score. We shoot at all ranges, and we'd like to be able to predict where a bullet will impact at all ranges, under all environmental conditions, and all angles of fire. The higher the BC value, the better.

Thankfully, there are bullet manufacturers who understand the value of providing accurate BC values. They're also busy. They're also making money.

Re: New bullet maker that looks interesting

oh man ! I go fishing for a weekend and all hell breaks loose !

Just to clear up a few things !

John with W3PS DID NOT come to this site looking for customers and try to gather a following !
Whiskey 3 already had a satisfied customer base established and growing daily .

I invited him to LRH, explaining that there is a bunch of good guys on here, I also convinced him to offer us 375 guys on LRH bullets that we have been crying about for a number of years, John went several steps further and went with all the cool bullet weights to cover 375 nuts in all flavors,
custom bullet dies take time and everybody on this site is aware of the time it takes to get custom anything when it comes to guns . How many of you had to wait 8 months to get a barrel ? a stock ? custom loading dies ? how about a year or even two for a rifle ?

Whiskey 3 Precision are here to provide us bullets that WE desperately need and they certainly do not owe us anything, with the demand for their current products they have no need to take on another burden with specialty bullets for a small yet ungrateful crowd ! I would not blame them a bit for walking away and abandoning this site, I would be really pissed at the hecklers here though, there is a few guys making noise but obviously have no intention of buying any of the bullets from W3PS, that much is clear !!

Suddenly there is a code of conduct bullet makers must follow, as dictated by a few LRH members !
In dealing with John I prefer his blunt and no holds barred honesty , some of you prefer the glossy tell-you-what-you-want-to-hear PR bs (then back to business as usual) , it appears several members have an ax to grind simply because of W3PS offering a similar product commercially that will disband a members only boys club for certain bullets .

My interest in Whiskey 3 bullets is substantial , I will be using their 6.5 mm, 7 mm, 308, 338 and 375 caliber bullets regularly, eventually the 458's as well when W3ps starts offering them !

I completely agree with your statement Swamplord. After knowing and feeling the wait for certain components and products I'm inclined to follow suite and wait the two to three years for a 375 A-max or Berger. I know what their products have done and how they will continue to conduct their business.

what's funny is you have been waiting......they have also mislead you guys in more ways than one from every angle on the bullets they say they are gonna come out with.......and will never adhere to any custom orders ect.....and you still wanna let them walk all over you??!! You must have only hear what you wanted to hear with Swamplord's statement. Good luck on the wait......by the time they get it out we will already have the market covered with far a superior product.

That's exactly why we are in business. ......the mainstream has not filled the right gaps in Precision projectiles and in .30 cal products alone we have changed the game drastically in a very short time from every angle, and we will continue to keep doing just that!

That right there is what is getting people frustrated...this "game changing" bullet still doesn't have a decent review, an accurate BC or on game performance tests. This thread is currently the biggest thread on all the internet about your W3P bullets and yet there's very very little actual information about your bullets. They look promising and one reason you should be listening to Rich since he's been making the same bullet for years...
