Would you use it?

Hello All,

Lets say you could buy a 30 caliber 160gr bullet with a BC of .550 and gain 200 FPS over what you would get in a "typical" bullet. Lets say this bullets holds up well when you shoot a deer, elk, moose or similar animal and provides an exit hole every time. Lets say the bullet copper fouls a lot less then a "typical" jacketed bullet. Lets say this bullet provides for 1/2 MOA accuracy.

Would you buy and use such a bullet? For hunting? For target?

Re: Would you use it?

Texas,

Its been in the works now for about a year. I have designed a bullet that has several advantages over "conventional" bullet designs. After testing my design on both paper and more recently on a hog hunt I went on, the bullets have proven to work as designed.

I will have them available to the public in a few weeks. I am just now completing the finishing touches on my web site.

We used a 257 Roberts, 7mm mag and 300 win mag to kill 5 different hogs using my bullets. All where complete pass throughs.

I will keep all informaed when the site opens up.

Shaky,

Sounds like you know where the Holy Grail is too? Just kidding...

I hope your venture does turn out. Always nice to see some new innovations. Big problem is that Barnes and other majors are coming out with bullets that claim similar things. Cost and availability is going to be a big factor in success.

I am sure you have done your market research, so look forward to your release.

Jerry

Sounds good! If it has a BC of .550, a 160 ought to go about 3500 fps in my 300 Ultra and have a better BC than the 180's I've been using to top it off. I'm ready! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Any plans of a heavier one with even a higher BC yet?

I've been reading about Powell River Laboratories Tungsten core bullets too and they "sound" pretty cool.
