    I shot them in 416. Cut my groups in half compared to the factory lathe turned barretts. Have not tried them in 338 yet. I will call geoge and see if he can get me a box to play with in a lapua and I will tell.

    The past few days I've been talking to someone im sure everyone on this site is very familiar with that has been testing the 225 250 and 300 grain 338 rocky mountain bullets, he's been shooting them out of his 338 allen mag, he says for the 225s and 250s have some serious cosmetic issues which most likely wont have anything to do with accuracy but if you pay $2.15 per bullet you want a bullets that ateast looks like its worth 2.15. He has been recently shooting the 300 grain bullets and at 1000 yards and at the same velocities the 300 smk has been shooting a 1/4 moa higher so they're bcs are way off. Also he's been shooting them into wet dirt and basically they have only retained 10% of its weight. So he dosent recommend these for hunting. Just thought id let the people know that have been waiting to find out info on the bullets but have been sceptical on spending that much money. I am in no way trying to start a debate or bash the company just letting everyone know what a reliable shooter has told me.

    Why doesnt this reliable shooter come forth? Better than speculation or third party perspective.

    If they weren't outlandishly expensive I would try them. Since they are, I won't...:rolleyes:

    All of my long range hunting bullets blow up like a hand grenade at high velocities in a dirt bank. They work very well at the very much lower velocities of long range. I feel that this is universal for all thin jacket long range bullets. p.s. I hope my next Elk hasn't read Romans 10:13
