New JLKs


Anyone try the new JLKs since Jimmy sold the business? Would be interested in the .30 cal. bullets.

I'm curious about the 30 and 224 bullets myself.

Re: New JLKs

Ive got no personal experence... but I met one guy who does... the scuba instructor I met on vacation (in branson) shoots highpower, and lives a few doors down from swampy. He says the new bullets are still just as good as ever.
I know its kinda... I know a guy who knows a guy... but in talking to him for the better part of an hour, I figured out he knew his stuff... and good from bad.

Re: New JLKs

I guess the real way to find out is order a few. I think it's been about a year since Swampy bought JLK so I would think he would have a handle on it by now. The 300 RUM I have likes the 210s real well so I think I'll give Steve a call. I'll spin a few and let you know, if you are interested.

Gonna haffa put this off for a while at least with the 210s. Talked to Steve today and he said the dies were ruined by a machinist and must make new ones. Maybe have more info in March.
