Re: What would you Build ( Kirby and Ernie )

MsgMan,

There are J-4 based 200 gr ULD RBBT and some heavier jacketed 200 gr ULD RBBTs as well. In the testing we have done with both bullets, the J-4 based 200 gr ULD RBBT was significantly more accurate then the heavier jacket so that is why you only hear about the J-4 version.

Richard is working with new jacket makers all the time to find heavier, tapered jackets to use on his bullets but for the time being, the J-4 based 200 gr ULD RBBT is the best.

With that high of a sectional density, penetration has yet to be a problem even on mature bull elk size game. Even with the very light jacketed bullet.

Thanks for answering that Kirby.
Wasn't Richard using a Harrison jacket (spelling?) at one time? I couldn't remember the name and didn't want to give in accurate info.

I know Richard has tested J-4, Sauter(sp?) and Sierra jackets on his 200 gr ULD RBBT. The J-4 gave us what we were looking for accuracy wise and so thats the one that is most commonly used. I have yet to hear of any reports of poor penetration from this thin jacketed bullet.

Re: What would you Build ( Kirby and Ernie )

So much for my memory as far as other jackets go... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
I guess I just let Richard take care of that.
Since I got back from Colorado I have used Puff to pop a small 8pt @ 546 yards and a male coyote at somewhere between 330-340 yards.
He kept moving after I ranged him and I had to bark to get him to stop. I used the ART reticle with the yote and dialed for the deer.
The 200 WC even expanded good on the coyote.
I'm extremely pleased with Kirby & Richard's work.
My 12 year old shot Puff yesterday for the first time and commented that it didn't kick it all [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
I have been thinking hard about a fast twist 25, but maybe it will be a fast twist {1-7?} 6.5 caliber (6.5WSM, 6.5 Dakota or something in between the two) with say, a 160 class RBBT/ULD[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
