Re: Test drove my new 450 Ultra Magnum on a WA bull.

Dang 6.5 RUM sound like a monster. I started a thread awile back trying to find some high BC bullets in 6.5mm that were bigger than 140g. I didnt have any luck, I wanted to try to improve the terminal performance of my 264win. What bullet are you thinking of trying in that?

Re: Test drove my new 450 Ultra Magnum on a WA bull.

My thing @ the moment, to get bullets to approach my needs and wants includes making my own brass tips and retipping conventional bullets after removing the plastic tips. The process increases bc quite a bit and the weight nearly 10 grains.

I like CEB's approach with the non conventional innovation of inserting one's own tips or loading the same bullet both ways. Pretty nifty.

I'm in a similar boat as you regarding my 375 Am (Chey Tac improved and necked down). What kind of hoops does one have to jump through to get CEB to do a special run of a prototype bullet?

The final product I envision would be a boat tail high bc bullet hollow point with a meplat of somewhere around 0.2". I'd insert my own brass point of a special design for the bullet.

Any thoughts.....

Roy
Would you be able to do that with a 6.5mm 140g ACCUBOND?

Re: Test drove my new 450 Ultra Magnum on a WA bull.

CEB told me they can do whatever I wanted, I think it was a min 500 piece run? I'll have to check back on that. I still have a ways to go before I get to that point. For the heavier 6.5 bullet I was going to go with CEB in a all copper, have them do a specific weight bullet for me somewhere in the 162-168 range.

If I had to go with a factory bullet in 6.5, hands down it would be the 140 Accubond. 99 percent of the game I have taken since their arrival has been with the Accubond in one caliber or another. From .257- .375. It would be creator they marketed a .458 Accubond!
