    Gentlemen. Has anyone used or heard of anyone who has used the High B.C. hunting bullets from Lost River.
    I would like to get some input from some who has used them.

    I have used the .30cal j36 180gr. this bullet
    is a real performer but very pricy.They shoot like a laser and will take game I just can't see the elevated price.Sierra makes some bullets, SMK that will do about the same at a lot better price!!

    Sniper2 can you give me some data. How long were the shots what was the penatration like how fast at the muzzle were the pills going? stuff like that. Looks like I will be heading home from the sand box very soon after 10 months. Looking forward to some load development on my new 280 Ackly.
