Re: Wildcat non bonded bullets
The man to ask is Richard himself so send him an e-mail the first part of June, he's chasing Grizzly right now!!!
If I may make a suggestion, do not get to hung up on using a RBBT for big game hunting. Richard offers several ogive options on his bullets and something like a #10 or even ULD ogive combined with a Flat base would offer good high BC numbers as well as allow the heavier jackets to be used for much better penetration at close range impacts on game such as elk.
Richard offers jackets from 0.030" up to 0.065". The 0.030" is the best for all around hunting, close and long range but if you center heavy bone at close range you may have some issues depending on the sectional density of the bullet. In the case of the 338 I would not think you would have a problem with at least 225 gr of bullet weight.
Again, if your not going to be hunting past 500 yards, the RBBT is not "needed". Dispite modern thinking, a Flat base bullet will reach out past 300 yards!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Give Richard a call or e-mail, he will point you in the right direction for sure.
