    Got an e-mail back from Northwest Custom Projectiles. My question to them was if they were planning on adapting an aluminum tip to their 180g .308, like they have on their .50 cal bullets. Also that there are a lot of folks here that would be interested in high bc projectiles designed for hunting.

    The message that I got back stated that they were planning to have a 180g .308 out soon with an aluminum tip, and that it should run about .720bc.

    This looks to be a nice projectile that may not come with a bunch of baggage from the drama dept.:rolleyes:

    Would still like to here from anyone here that has experience with these.

    Steve,

    Robert is a good guy and great to work with. He even makes the jackets himself. Buy some and try them.

    Thank you for the report.

    Are these the new ones with the aluminum tip? Did you, or are you going to try and catch one to see terminal performance? Really hoping to see good controlled expansion. These bullets may have to be the next ones to try.

    Thanks, Steve

    I've done some work/business with Robert at NwCP; great stuff. I was working on my proprietary cartridge a few years ago and asked him to make me up some 85gr and 90gr bonded .224 caliber bullets. They turned out great; very accurate, in my .22 GTO
    Robert was very helpful with my project request(s), nice guy, with great products. You won’t regret doing business with him

    BHW,

    May I ask, how much were they? My Uncle lives close to Butte, I may have him go and grab some.

    Not so honourable and honest as you may think!! A few years ago he was selling (or so he said) jackets, took a deposit
    of $1,200 from me, exchanged a few e-mails, excuses were he was waiting on copper.... 3 + years now.

    I truly appreciate the help, I'm afraid I'll have to chalk it up as lesson learnt.
    Thanks, Marshal
