So, what kind of calibers would folks be interested in?
What weights per caliber?
Other characteristics such bonded cores? Copper bullets? Bullets with a partial tungsten core?
What would folks expect to pay for a box of 50? (No, they're not free
Please let me know if there are any other characteristics folks would like to see!
Thanks to one and all!
When I first came across this thread I got a good buzz and was certain the LRH crowd would push/pull the OP in the direction we should be heading, instead I got sort of a hangover headache from the backwards thinking that entailed ! the Idea presented WAS Long Range Bullets for HUNTING !
then we start talking about slow factory twists and AR and 223 guys expending bullets by the truckload at 100 ft .... WHO cares ? WE are talking long range.... not shooting up refrigerators and washing machines at a local dump with AR's, mini 14's and cheap factory rifles.......
We simply do not need more of the same bullets !! What is needed is where the current heavy weight high bc bullets stop.... make that the starting point and not look back....
otherwise you will create another micro brew beer with a different label !!!!!!
there was once on LRH a decent thread about .375 cal bullets that was derailed in a similar backwards thinking fashion that absolutely did no good for the potential of a heavy high bc bullet in that flavor.........
some of us here overthink things and attempt to include the vast majority of bullet slingers when we really should be looking out for each other and our sport, the others guys don't give a rats furry or shaved behind about the LRH crew ........
might as well tell the OP to cast a bunch of wheelweight bullets..............they will be easy to manufacture and cheap to buy
