I pay nearly that much for the hunting bullet that I use now. I don't plink with it I hunt with it. It is exceptional at what it does at any range. If it is an exceptional Hunting bullet then it is worth it in my opinion.

Not unless it is readily available!

Too many people burnt with one bullet guns from one single person mftr that ends up leaving them high and dry.

Particularily not if the bullet requires a special twist barrel.

IMO recipe for frustration and disaster.

No, I don't think I would.
To many other good bullets out there for 1/3 the price.

Re: Would you pay it

NO. for a number of reasons.
1.) to really make use of that BC your going to need to find a place to shoot a lot further than I am now and right now finding a place to hunt where I can shoot far enough to really make use of a BC that high is really hard.
2.) I would have to completely redo my rifle build to change the twist and COAL to be able to shoot it. To make full use of the BC I would also need to completely revamp my optics.
3.) I am first off a hunter not a target shooter (that's debatable at times though ) I build rifles to enable me to shoot at animal's that I couldn't reach before with the calibers/energy/higher BC that I had been using. The .338 Edge I'm building shooting 300 grain Sierra Match Kings will most likely be able to more than do the job I need done. Kind of hard to beat the price of those and justify paying that much more for a bullet with that BC.

I will say this though. Some of the area's the other guys hunt in it just might be that they can make full use of the higher BC and range so it might be possible that would want it. Now if you said how about a .25 cal bullet with a BC in the .700 I might just jump all over that one.
