Cutting Edge Bullets

Has anyone shot any of these bullets? They don't have a huge selection, but they do have some 300gr VLDs in .338 with a very good B.C.

They look like they would be a good bullet, just really long in whatever cal. you choose.

    Interesting.

    I like to see those that step up to the plate, grab the bit in their teeth and advance to the next level.

    I appreciate their warning regarding tight bores. That would be Lilja I suppose. Someone will have to be the pioneer on this.

    The downer, though typical, is that the 277 cal is left short at the 130 gr level. But a 160-170 class projectile in 270 would take up about half the barrel length.

    Love the GS bore rider bullet and the Lehigh bullets are fine. Already made the call to try some of these.

    A 130gr bullet with a .540 BC isn't not to bad though, wack them out of a 270 WSM they would have some reach out and touch someone effect on deer!!

    Re: Cutting Edge Bullets

    Been testing these bullets before they hit the market...

    Here's some information that I posted a while back about the 300 gr .338 bullets....

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    As promised... here are the results we logged when comparing the 300 gr solid with the 300 SMK..

    Both bullets were shot at a velocity of 3200 fps give or take a few ft + or - variation.
    The 300 SMK was shot out of a 33" 10 tw barrel, and the 300 gr solid was shot out of a 30" 8.5 tw barrel. Both loads are single digit ES.

    We did not shoot for group, just engaged rocks approx 12" in diameter. Two shots per rock at each range.

    300 SMK

    650 yds 9.5 moa
    785 yds 12.5 moa
    1,293 yds 27.75 moa
    1,460 yds 34.75 moa
    1,789 yda 49.25 moa

    300 gr solid

    650 yds 8 moa
    785 yds 11.5 moa
    1,293 yds 25.5 moa
    1,460 yds 31.25 moa
    1,789 yds 44.25 moa

    As you can see, the solid was 5.0 moa flatter at 1,789 yards. That equates to 90" or 7.5 ft.
    They were extremely consistent from shot to shot at each target.

    Not an all encompassing test by any means, but certainly some hard data to ponder....

    Did you notice any heavy coppering after shooting the Cutting Edge Bullets, like what most folks see when shooting the original versions of the borerider bullets?

    Coppering has been my main reson for avoiding anything the says its a borerider.
