New Projectiles

Thought these projectiles would be of interest. I asked if he was making some for slower twist barrels. Like a 338 for a 9.3 twist. Hopefully. The hunting bullets look very interesting.

Re: New Projectiles

I know some guys that are shooting some of Noel's .375 banded solid bullets. They require a very fast twist for the caliber.

I have a gain twist barrel (14" twist gain to a 7" twist - finish at 32") on order from Bartlein for my 338LM Improved (should be delivered in early 2009) and will post results when I get the barrel delivered and test some of the bullets.

Re: New Projectiles

Jeff,
Great, look forward to the results. I have a 338Lapua Improved also but with a 9.3 twist. It shoots the 300smk's great and I am also going to try the HAT's. It's new so I am not wanting to rebarrel,yet. I have a Stiller Tac 300 to build on and was looking at various bullets to help decide on the next caliber. Looks like their are alot of good 30cal bullets coming out as well.

Are you going to build a 7mm Holy Grail to shoot those 7mm bullets?

Re: New Projectiles

Tyler,
I noticed before you mentioned you needed a dummy round, I thought someone was going to send you one.
I would have sent one out had I known you didn't get it.
No Problem send me your address, I'll send it out to you next week when I get home.
I can put a 300SMK in it.
What length would you like it?
Don't worry about it, on me. Merry Christmas!

Yes I'm building a swap barrel rig on my Stiller PreditorX; 338LM Improved for the first, and the second barrel is, in fact, a 7mmHoly Grail. I look forward to throwing some of my Cauterucio 189s at 3,300 fs.
