    Hi all.

    I have seen theire web page and they advertise a 1,01 BC for a alum. tipped hunting bullet in 338, with a 325 grain weight.

    Anyone tried these?? I wonder how they work on game and accuracy wise??

    Thanks

    alg,

    What is the web address for these bullets? I can't find them, and would like to look at them. Sorry I don't have any info for you.

    They also have a new .375 cal 365gr bullet that has me interested. I'm also interested if anyone has any experience with either of these bullets. Very nice B.C.'s

    The products page states that the 338's are "soon to be released."

    I'm very interested in these products as well. I wonder if Shawn C or Kirby has any experience with this company or its bullets?

    I would think they are in the know, but I emailed 'em anyway to ask what they know... Very interesting development...

    Excellent. If they do reply and don't jump on this post to share their thoughts, please let us know what you find out.

    Thanks,

    Also emailed the bullet maker and asked:

    When will your .338 AT bullets be ready for sale?

    Do you have expansion testing information for the .338 RBTATs? What other .338 weights (and requisite barrel twists) will you plan on making?

    Will report back what I hear...

    I looked over the site and given the numbers and specs, would guess that they are the old Wildcat bullets. I do not know that for a fact but it would appear that way.

    OK guys, sorry I don't get on this site to often. The 338 bullet we are going to offer are going to be awhile before we can start production. We just finished the testing on the .375, Bobby Lawton did most of the testing with his .375 cheytac and was very happy with the results.
    The .375 bullets will be released next week and were very excited to get them out. Or web site Home will have all the tech data for the bullets.
    Thanks, George

    George,

    Thank you for participating. Will you be making any smaller calibers than the .338? If so, would you be willing to tell us your plans?

    Thanks, Steve

    From email from Rocky Mtn. Bullets:

    "Unfortunately the .338 bullets are a ways off before we will be able to start production. I'm the only die maker in our shop and only make the dies in my spare time. We are so behind in our bullet orders at this time I just don't have any spare time to make the dies.
    The attached pic is of prototype bullet we did the expansion test with. This bullet expanded to over twice the cal. and retained 80% of the original weight, really great hunting bullet not to mention very accurate. Current price is on our web site along with all the tech data."
