    I used them. They worked well in a tight bore barrel.

    there's a new name on their building.

    No bullets coming out of there or so it seems.

    If you plan to shoot them, the barrel MUST be made to the requirements of those bullets .. The word must is imperative--. Lawton is the only way to go for a barrel maker as Barney can get the specific twist mandated by those bullets. Contact them and they will get you on the right path.

    Mine are all .308 flavor. Most accurate bullets I ever shot.

    Here is what I have:

    --(40) moly-coated poly-tipped 165gr J36

    --(43) moly-coated 165gr J36

    --(100) 165gr J36

    --(100) 140gr J36

    --(60) 140 gr poly-tipped J36

    --(60) 165 gr poly-tipped J36

    As for price and any sort of deal, it would be prudent to do that privately. Price will depend on how may you want.
