Re: Hey! winmag & bigngreen

Roy, are you shooting some of your own boolits or are they of the shelf? 3000 fps + with that 150 should be a fairly good combo. I keep trying to get my buddy to tinker with his 270 win but he's afraid he'll screw up what he has going.

It good your still in one piece, us young guys gotta keep you guys around somebody has to show us how it's done!!!

Red misting a wolf takes some work from what I've seen, did Idaho even make there quota on wolves, Mt made it before I could get to serious about any hunting other than elk and deer for the freezer. The FWP took out the couple packs I was getting patterned any way.

Have you heard any word on the 169.5 Wildcats? I'm trying not to pester Paul about them but it is getting real hard.

Re: Hey! winmag & bigngreen

These bullets are my own unique creation.

As you know the 270 cal has a limited selection of bullet offerings.

BCs of factory offerings are poor at best.

I'm coming up with a way, maybe/I hope/, that'll make high bc bullets from 140 through 160 class weights simple for the serious shooter if he wants to do a little of the work.

Paul should have some WCs shortly.

My shots into media yesterday were exceptionally disastrous to the media, media containers and my back stop. Hence the red mist comment.

The lid was blown way over to the right.



Here's the damage to the lid. It was just sitting on the top. No restraints. The containers are pretty handy but way too brittle. The front one split from the bottom front all the way to the top of the back. 10 gal capacity. Only about 6 gal of media remained after the shot.



Here's a pic of the bullet. I'm just adding a point to a Nosler 130/140/150 Ballistic tip. Should up the bc significantly.

Two shots into media. First shot, bottom left. Found the point. It's reusable. All that was found of the second was the base, lodged in the back stop.


Always something interesting going on in the back yard.

Re: Hey! winmag & bigngreen

Glad to see your still kickin Roy
Hey, if you get those bullets to ''grenade'' anymore youll be onto something for wolves....NO RIFELING MARKS!!! Whats up with your experiment? Looks cool. How is it for stability? looks kinda front heavy. I got a 270wsm if you need another tester, but Im not crammin that thing full of powder to do it.(you got bigger ones than I do) Very cool pics by the way.

Re: Hey! winmag & bigngreen

I hope you remove the target before the mail man runs he might get nervous

Are you building your bullets roy ? It looks like you are building one bullet out of two . Do you have a bullet lathe if so could you post a picture of it I've never seen one before .

Thanks
BigBuck

Re: Hey! winmag & bigngreen

You try putting one of those tips in a Berger? Ya, I think a wolf would have a hard time packing one of those!!

Re: Hey! winmag & bigngreen

Very cool looking! Would be interested in how you make them as well. Looks like you chop off the tip and a bit of the body of a BT, drill a hole, then seat the tip in that?

If you have the machines to make the tips, why not make entire bullets?

If you make any .308cal "wolf misters" hit me up
