    I do not know much about them either, they are supposed to start production again but don't know when. I know Kirby Allen shot/shoots them out of his wildcat cartridges and liked them. They have super high BC's. The only reason I am selling them is my 25-06 would not stabilize them, or the 115 Bergers. Maybe someone with more experience with these will chime in?

    I have a 257 weatherby that I think they would work but without knowing what they are, I am a little hesitant.

    They are a really high bc line of bullets made by the custom bullet maker "wildcat". They are out of business as i have heard the owner is bankrupt. Mario, i believe you will need a 1:9 twist but if the seller could provide the length of the bullet i could find out exactly what twist is needed. Also, this is a really great price IMO and i would be all over them if i had the twist. I believe royinidaho has some of the heavy ULD 270 wildcat bullets, but dont quote me on that.

    1.289" for 125
    1.205" for 115

    Those measurement are base to tip, when my Forster datum dial arrives I can measure to the ogive. I bought these off this forum a few years back and have the original box for the 125's and can put the 115's in a Berger box as the original broke.

    With the 125 from a 257 weatherby at 3100 fps in a 1:10 twist at 59 degrees and 1000' ASL it is right on the edge of stability. Use the stability calculator on the upper right of the page. Hunting Bullets | Berger Bullets

    It'd be fun to try them but . . . once they are gone they're gone!!!

    The ones you have are most probably original Richard Graves bullets. They will be good.

    The new owner of the Wildcat name went east with the geese under a cloud of darkness never to be heard from again. . .:rolleyes:

    He didn't make any 25 cal bullets and only a few in 7mm.

    I have a stash of orginal 169.5s in .277 that are only used for taking game. Should last awhile.

    Do you know if Paul bought all of Richard's equipment, and moved it down to the states?
    What a shame for all of that equipment, and the bullets that they could produce to be collecting dust somewhere.
