Re: New Project

jwp475,
I like crow mag shoot a 338Lapua Mag Imp (338MOAG)I also shoot the 300grSMK at 3050fps. I would love to shoot the 325gr Wildcat you talk about or any 338cal Wildcat bullet, they dont exist. Berger is rumored to be making a 338 VLD bullet soon but for now the 300gr SMK is the only game in town.

Riichard of Wildcat bullets has a 338 die that he is happy with now and is again making 338 bullets. I bought 1,000 of the 325 grainers and they are in transit as I type.......

Re: New Project

I haven't shot them yet, but I really like the looks of the new 265's:



From left to right: 200 AB, 210 SMK, 240 SMK, 265 Wildcat RBBT ULD, 300 SMK (338 cal).

That's the nicest nose profile and meplat I've seen yet. This bullet should easily best the 300 SMK for BC and yes, I would bet on that. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] I'll wait for actual tests to put a number on it, but my WAAG is it won't even be close. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] So, it's on a different planet than the rest of the 30 cals we've had available up until now. That's the big thing. These are around 1.76" long so I'm pretty sure these are short enough to work from a 1:9. I'll know for sure soon enough.

Unfortunately it'll be a couple of weeks before I get a chance to shoot them. I'll let you all know how they do. If all goes well, I'll be ordering a bucketfull. Or two. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Richard made a pile of them so there are plenty available.

As if you can't tell, I'm pretty excited about this bullet. I've been waiting for it for a looooonnnngggg time! Finally it's here! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: New Project

Sorry John, I forgot. I figure I'll run these up to around 2800-2825 fps from the 26.7" 300 RUM. I figure that should be pretty easily attainable from this bullet with US869 without pushing things too far.
