Re: How do all of the Match bullets compare?

Regarding your comment on bullet makers suggesting their hollow point match bullets be used on game:

I have also heard this about Sierra MK but I no longer believe it as long as they are shot at a decent speed.

Don't you mean "impact at a decent speed?."

Wildcat bullets are hunting type bullets built to match quality with extreemely high BC's. These have quickly become my favorite bullets.

Well, it is my understanding that the bulk of Wildcat bullets that are ULD, RBBT use a J-4 jacket too. And I have 500 of the .277 169.5 and 200 of the 150 grain on order. So is this going to be a problem?

Derek:

What does it say on the end of the box of your 277 cal 169.5 grain bullets? Does it say Open H.P. or H.P. C.J.?

The last batch I got from Richard in .277 cal - 169.5 grain ULD RBBT are labeled H.P. C.J. and he said these are the heavier jackets. The ones labeled Open H.P. are the J-4s according to my understanding.

If there's any question just send Richard an e-mail and he'll straighten things out.

As to the results with the J-4 jackets, I shot a deer and an elk with them in 7mm this year and both were bang flops.

You know, I'm not sure. When I get home, I'll check that. Thanks for telling me. I had several conversations with Richard on the phone and going by memory, I think they're the thicker jacket.

Yes I meant impast speed. When my buddy Bill Bailey hit his buck this year at 503yds with a 240gr SMK the exit wound was the size of a small canteloupe. I believe you need a decent amount of velocity to get the SMK to preform good on game.

Luckily the high BC translates to high retained energy. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I think the problem with SMK's on game comes a lot from people shooting varmints with SMK's at long range and the bullet just zipping through. I am sure if Bill Bailey shot a coyote with that 240gr bullet at 700yds it will probably pop right through it.

Might have to try that so we know for sure!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: How do all of the Match bullets compare?

I bet yours are the Corbin Jacket Derek, at least i think that is what the CJ stands for. It is a lot tougher than the J-4

From the exploits of SS7MM, yes I am jealous as hell since I didnt kill a damn thing but time this season [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img], it seems like the J-4 works pretty dang good
