During my research I learned that I could get enough stuff, from bare bench, to make 1000 bullets of the caliber I wanted for about $2300.00. From then on it was the cost of additional components, jackes, cores, points etc.
However, jackets aren't falling off of trees which can throw a big wrench into the works.
I can only imagine that Richard had a bunch of unrecoverable lead time in his process.
His 169.5 gr 270s are/were most probably, in my estimation, one of the best bullets ever made by any one.The combination of the 170 high bc bullet in the 270 AM with the 30" Lilja bbl is a combination that comes together only once in a very long time.
The 170 Class bullet in the 270 AM out does 195 in pretty much all situations especially since the 195s dust from my barrel.
