Wildcat Bullets

Anyone using or have used any of these. Sorry for another bullet question just heard about them and emailed them on their suggestions for a 7 mm STW.

    I have used the 7mm 200 grain WC for pd's deer, antelope, and elk. Accurate and perform great.

    I read on the website under the gallery about the tuff nuff bullet or something out of an stw? do you know where i can get some info on the bullets such as BC etc. Pretty interesting reading on the bullet theory. How do they hold up or are they more of a long range bullet?

    Another vote for the 7mm 200 grain Wildcat bullets.

    I've killed deer from just under 100 yards to just under 900 yards and all were bang flops and no bullets recovered. Also one elk at just under 700 yards same bang flop but I did recover what was left of the bullet after it traveled most of the length of an elk.

    What do you think about the 150 in the 7 mm STW? I was thinking i could probably keep th velocity up around 3200+ and yet have a pretty good BC. I read more on teh site and noticed they were bonded as well. These bullets have me interested for sure.

    One thing I'd recommend to anyone that doesn't already have it, is to buy QuickLoad. Used properly it will answer questions you can't get answered any other way unless you have unlimited funds and time. It's one of the things I've got that I wouldn't be without.

    You can play "what if" with any caliber, barrel, bullet etc. and never leave your computer. It's a computer program and not real world stuff but once you learn to use it properly and input everything necessary it will get you very close.

    You really need to call the bullet maker or drop him an email. Get the information first hand and not through the grapevine. The first thing he will tell you is that he is not responsible for what other say and this is correct. Just talk or communicate directly with him. Much less hassle and fewer disappointments.
