Re: swampworks bullets

I'm assuming your talking about 7mm. I can't tell you whether it's legit or not. .735 is up there???...Berger's 7mm 180 Target VLD .659 maybe others might know and comment.

Re: swampworks bullets

Darrin,

I asked basically the same question last year. You should find this good reading, including an article or two by Bryan Litz

JLK VLDs?

Mark

PS.... if you go to JBM calcs and plug in Litz's stuff for the 180 Berger and 180 JLK, you'll see about a 3" diff in drop @ 1000 yds. Essentailly the same BC. My money is on Bryan's work and findings.

Re: swampworks bullets

Why do you suppose neither Berger of Swampworks produce any bullets in the 338 caliber? Is it not enough market demand or ???

I think it's probably very challenging to make a bullet of that size in a J4 jacket. My guess is that when Berger comes out with the 338 it will be a modified jacket along the lines of their thick target bullets. Just a guess, I could be wrong.
