Thank you and wow! That 247 is something else! Yes, can you give us twist rates and bullet lengths for those two as well?

    Paul,

    thanks for the update!

    I didn't realize you were still running a one man shop! That explains it, I bet getting this all set up is tough. However once you do, i think you will get a good share of the market, your bullets fill a lot of niches major manufacturers have ignored.

    The 30cals look AWSOME! Once you get those out I will help you pay bills too!! Will you be making poly tip versions? Because I know AT bullets are costly to manufacture and therefore also expensive for us consumers.

    Oliver

    They both shoot well in the 1:8 barrel that I have. I don't think a 1:10 would work for either.

    Thanks again and keep plugging along!!!
    It's a 1:8. It's for sale if your dad's interested $975. There's a pic in the thread: 6.5x284 Lets see yours..

    Lengths?

    Edit: I've got a .338 265g Wildcat AT RBBT ULD when Richard was making them that, compared to the pic, indicates it's about the same length as the 210 and shorter than that 247. Wow.
