    Texas,

    I already have a 206gr 338 caliber bullet in the works and will be adding it to the line up as soon as all testing is complete.

    Have a good one,

    Brent,

    I don't have any numbers for a 300 RUM using my 159gr EXP bullet. I can tell you what was obtained with a 300 win mag - 3400 FPS.

    After loading the 300 win mag with 79gr of Reloader 22 we saw no pressure signs at all and a .374" group was shot at 100 yards.

    DANTEC,

    I am not sure what caliber bullet you are refering to with the HV.

    I can tell you this, you can easily get close to the lands with my bullet. Are you able to get close to the lands with the bullet you are using?

    Most bullets shoot well when they are seated close to the lands, not always, but most of the time.

    The 2 designs are totally different. I used a different methodology in designing the EXP bullet.


    Boyd,

    As soon as I have them available, I will let you know. What caliber are you interested in?

    Have a good one all,

    Don [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Would you use it?

    Boyd,

    I already have a 7mm and 30 cal bullet.

    The 7mm is 127gr and the 30 cal is 159gr.

    With minimal load develoment we were able to obtain 3/8" groups with the 300 win mag. Actually, we only tried two different loads.

    Here is the data:

    300 win mag
    159gr EXP Groove Bullet
    79gr of Reloader 22
    CCI-BR2 Primer
    Norma Case
    3.505" OAL - .015 off the lands
    3 shot group at 100 yards = .374" (Dave shot)
    Average velocity = 3401 FPS
    1 in 12 twist barrel

    7mm mag
    127gr EXP Groove Bullet
    74gr of Reloader 22
    CCI-BR2 Primer
    Win Case
    3.355 OAL - .015 off the lands
    3 shot group at 100 yards = .635"
    Average velocity = 3450 FPS
    24" barrel, 1 in 10 twist

    I shot the 7mm mag for group and I was shaking pretty good that day. I should of had Dave shoot it. I am sure he would of been under the 1/2" mark.

    Both cases are full of powder and no pressure signs at all. We are going to go to a hotter powder and see what kind of velocities we obtain while maintaining accuracy.

    Are you looking for a hunting bullet or a benchrest bullet?

    Have a good one,

    Don [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: Would you use it?

    Do both the Target and Hunting bullet have the same BC in the 160 30 cal?

    Let me know when I can get a box and I'll give them a try. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Texas,

    I was reading it in The Highpower Shooting Primer published by Precision Shooting Inc pg. 298-302. How does a 268gr 30 cal with a BC of .910 sound. [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] Can you say let's play with the 50 BMG guys! Only thing out there that will beat them is the 50 and maybe the 408 CT.
